Starting September 14, cancer survivor Geoff Luttrell is riding from San Francisco, CA to Houston, TX to raise funds for the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston TX.

"12 years ago I was diagnosed with Angio-Sarcoma, a rare and aggressive cancer," says Luttrell. "I was given a 10% chance to make it 6 months. I was treated by the incredible doctors and staff at MD Anderson and the money will go to help uninsured patients receive critical treatment. The uninsured face problems far beyond "just" a cancer diagnosis. My medical care exhausted a $250,000 insurance policy, so I'm sure you can see the importance of this project."
