Local cyclists riding for Team Strong Heart, from Colorado and Minnesota in the United States of America, will again compete in the 2008 Race Across America on behalf of their chosen charity Camp Odayin. Team Strong Heart was organised in 2006 for the purpose of completing the 2007 Race Across America bicycle race.
For 2008, Team Strong Heart has organised a four-person Mixed relay team, headed by Team Captain Amy Xu. In addition, returning Team Strong Heart racer Timothy Case will be competing in the Race Across America in the Solo category, a first for the Team Strong Heart Organization.
The team is hoping to raise $100,000 USD for Camp Odayin during its RAA campaign. Camp Odayin provides residential, day and family camp experiences for children with heart disease.
The Race Across America is a bicycle race that covers approximately 3100 miles, 110,000 feet of climbing and 15 states.
