Join us August 10, 2013 for an even bigger, better B Strong Ride: Information & Registration
On behalf of the George Karl Foundation, I would like to thank everyone for making the 2012 Celestial Seasonings B Strong Ride a tremendous success in the fight against cancer.
We had more than 750 riders who helped raise more than $350,000 for cancer-related groups. That topped last year’s total by more than $80,000! I can’t wait to get started on next year’s event. (Join us August 10, 2013)
From the youngest of riders to the oldest among us, the karma generated and the class shown by everyone was off the charts. Led by president Peter Burns, Celestial Seasonings was a great host and threw a heck of a backyard party.
Proceeds from the event will be distributed among some of my favorite causes, including Love Hope Strength, MyLifeline.org and the Cancer Care Initiative at Progressive Health Center.
Thanks also to the Lance Armstrong Foundation for being a wonderful partner in this event. We look forward to many more successful fundraisers for years to come.
A final thank you to the musicians who entertained us throughout the day, the restaurants who kept our stomachs full and the local sponsors who provided additional support: RockyMountain Cancer Centers, Covidien, Zayo Group, Envysion, Laszlo Law, Crocs, Native Rank,Nest Fresh Eggs, GH Phipps, MBS Capital Markets, Sterling Rice Group, Holland & Hart and Boston Scientific.
It was truly a team effort – and nobody appreciates a team effort more than a coach.
Great job, everyone!
