CAMPAIGN: LIVESTRONG in the Communities


The 2016 LIVESTRONG Challenge is coming up on October 16, 2016. Starting in downtown Austin, participants can ride 20, 45, 65, or 100 miles on routes through the Texas Hill Country, or head out for the 5k run/walk. Here are five things you don’t want to miss out on this 20th anniversary year:

1. The PUPPY Power Stop!

This year’s LIVESTRONG Challenge is packed with exciting and new rest stops along each course route. One of our personal favorites is our partnership with Austin Pets Alive to provide an assortment of adorable puppies for participants to pet and play with while they take a brief break from the course. The pups have even generously agreed to host their own kissing booth! This is a stop full of fluff and love that you won’t want to miss!

2. Delicious sno-cones post event!

All those who participate in one of our ride distances or 5K run/walk will be invited to join us for a great party in our LIVESTRONG Village. One of this year’s vendors will be Kona Ice, a local favorite that serves delicious sno-cones in more flavors than we can count! Stop by and grab a cold and refreshing snack post-event. A portion of all proceeds will support our Challenge fundraising goals.

3. Fantastic food, drinks, and fun in the Village post-race!

Another perk of the Challenge Village is the delicious food and beer provided by some of our favorite local restaurants and breweries! All participants will get a meal ticket to eat after the event, while those that are of legal drinking age will gain access to the beer tent. You also won’t want to miss out on family-friendly activities like inflatables and a dunk tank!

4. Refreshments along the course route!

At LIVESTRONG, we have worked diligently to provide snacks and hydration stops along each course route. We are excited to announce that this year, nuun has agreed to be our primary hydration sponsor! Be sure to grab your share of nuun and keep hydrated throughout the day!

5. For the cool T-shirt, wristbands, and awesome support.

As part of Team LIVESTRONG you receive personal, one on one fundraising support and tips to help you exceed your goals. We help you create and set up a personal fundraising page to share your story, add pictures, and collect donations. We also provide you with materials and an abundance of wristbands for your fundraising campaign because we want you to succeed! As an added bonus, we give you a Team LIVESTRONG shirt to wear after you’ve crossed the finish line! You’ll leave the LIVESTRONG Challenge with a feeling of accomplishment knowing you achieved a goal for yourself and those fighting cancer.
