Place: Austin, Texas
Fundraising: $250 minimum with incentives to raise more.

Hop on a plane and join Lynda in this year's LIVESTRONG Challenge Austin! In conjunction with the Ride for the Roses Weekend, this event is the grand finale of the LIVESTRONG Series. In 2011 participants raised over $2.5 million for LIVESTRONG to support cancer survivorship programs and initiatives. Cyclists can choose from distances ranging from 10–100 miles. At the finish line, each cancer survivor is celebrated with a yellow rose. Afterwards participants and spectators are invited to join the Post-Event Party.
