The Texas 4000 for Cancer use online ticketing through Ticketbud!

  This weekend was the kick-off to a special, annual effort.  The LIVESTRONG TEXAS 4000 FOR CANCER, the world’s longest annual charity bike ride, is a community of cancer fighters. The riders, all University of Texas students, are the passionate young people at the heart of the organization. They train, fundraise, educate, and bring hope to those with cancer.  Our Director of Marketing, John Fitch, had the pleasure in the past to take part on the ride from Austin, TX to Anchorage, Alaska.  Ticketbud was more than honored to assist in the weekend’s festivities as the ride soon approaches it’s 8th annual endeavor.

We recommend watching this video made for the 2011 Team as well as keeping up with the riders’ blogs on the Texas 4000 Website.   WE > CANCER, Ticketbud Team          ]]]]> ]]>
