Team Survivor Newsletter August 2023

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer! Although it is still 10 months until Team Survivor returns to Lake Tahoe, the work to recruit and fundraise never stops. For many of us on the team this will be our last year riding America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride so we hope you will join us for one more lap around the lake! Thank you for signing up with Team Survivor to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

As you begin fundraising, remember to use our tag line and messaging:

When Team Survivor began in 2016, our goal was to raise a million dollars for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, family and co-workers, we have an opportunity to reach that goal this season. If you want to support our cause, there are a million reasons why; for those we have lost, for those still fighting, for research, for treatments, for patient support, for cures and for an end to blood cancers.

Registration Revelation

Remember, Team Survivor’s goal in 2024 is to meet and surpass $1,000,000 in donations for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. With that, we need to recruit a gorilla-sized team! As of August 1st we have 22 registered riders – what a great start! Time to invite your friends and family to join for an unforgettable season. Here are the riders who have already joined for 2024 – are you on this list? Are you sure? Check twice. If not, register here today –
