Fight Cancer. Win a Switchback 3.

Posted by on Jun 16, 2009 in Outdoor | 4 Comments


I am excited to announce that I have teamed up with Princeton Tec, who have been a lighting sponsor of  mine for the last few years, to help raise money for the Team Fatty Livestrong Challenge.  The formula is simple: Every $5 you donate earns you one raffle ticket.  Donating is extremely easy and secure.  But before I get into explaining how to donate, I wanted to share a few thoughts on why you should consider putting a little money into fighting cancer.

Cancer sucks.

Need I say anymore?  I didn’t think so.  Now, what is it exactly that Princeton Tec has given me, to give to you?  An excellent question.  Your donation to the Livestrong Challenge will enter you in a drawing for a chance to win a superb lighting package – whether you are racing in a solo or team 24, commuting to work, or just out for a night ride with locals, these lights will meet your needs.  I have been using Princeton Tec lights for the last several years and I love them.  I really do.  And if you win these lights, you will also love them as I love them.

What you can win:

    Switchback 3
    Corona Extreme
    Apex Headlamp
    RF6 Rear Flasher

So, not only will you get a  sweet set up for your bike, but the Apex headlamp will be perfect for your crew chief wrenching on your bike at 3AM.  Don’t have a crew chief?  You will now. If you add it all up, you are getting nearly $600 worth of lights. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.  Want to know more about the lights?  Click over to Princeton Tec’s website and read up on the goods.

Here’s how to donate:  Visit my Livestrong Challenge page.  Enter the dollar amount you wish to contribute (remember, every $5 buys you one chance to win), and then click the “continue” button. Enter your payment information and viola!  It’s that easy.  Help Team Fatty become a part of Livestrong history as we try and raise the most money any LS team has ever raised. And more importantly, let’s help kick the crap out of cancer, because as we all know; cancer sucks.

One final note. Justin Kline is the man at Princeton Tec who made this happen. Currently he is riding his bike across the country in the Tour Divide race. You can follow his progress here. Send him all the good vibes you can muster, as I am sure that the days are going to get lonely out on the divide.

And that reminds me. The contest to win the lighting package will continue until July 5th, 2009.
