Cyclists raising awareness for cancer visit Providence Children’s Hospital

During their cross-country 4,000-mile journey to raise awareness for cancer, the Texas 4,000 team of cyclists stopped by Providence Children’s Hospital.

“The Texas 4000 2021 team rode roughly 80 miles into El  Paso from Sierra Blanca yesterday,” said Carolina Mendez, a member of the Texas 4000 cycling team.

“We are grateful for Providence Children’s Hospital to allow us to donate this bike to a courageous young cancer patient who is battling cancer. We want to show as much support as we can, raise awareness and bring some comfort to the patients and wonderful faculty and staff who serve the individuals who are here.”

On Saturday, they paid a visit to Providence Children’s Hospital to present one special cancer patient a bicycle.  The team began their journey in Austin, Texas, and have already traveled more than 500 miles.

During their 70-day ride over a 4,000 plus bike ride from Austin to Anchorage, riders share hope, knowledge and raise funds to fight cancer.

Their ride will take them through New Mexico and Arizona to California, up the coast to the Canadian border and back down the Rocky Mountains to Austin.
