During their 4,000-mile journey to raise awareness for cancer, the Texas 4,000 team of cyclists stopped at Providence Children’s Hospital.
“The 2021 Texas 4000 team rode about 80 miles to El Paso from Sierra Blanca yesterday,” said Carolina Mendez, a member of the Texas 4000 cycling team.
“We are grateful to Providence Children’s Hospital for donating this bicycle to a courageous young cancer patient battling cancer. We want to show as much support as possible, raise awareness and provide some comfort to the patients and the wonderful teachers and staff who serve the individuals who serve here.”
On Saturday, they visited Providence Children’s Hospital to hand over a bicycle to a special cancer patient. The team started their journey in Austin, Texas, and has already covered more than 500 miles.
During their 70-day ride of more than 4,000 bikes from Austin to Anchorage, riders share hope, knowledge and raise money to fight cancer.
Their drive takes them through New Mexico and Arizona to California, along the coast to the Canadian border and back through the Rocky Mountains to Austin.
Texas 4000 cultivates student leaders and engages communities in the fight against cancer.
