Armstrong uses final Tour as LAF fund-raiser

Lance Armstrong is inviting his fans and supporters to sponsor him in his final Tour de France to raise finds for the Lance Armstrong Foundation which supports cancer research and survivorship.

"Since my battle with cancer, I've been riding with a deeper purpose," Armstrong wrote in an email to LAF supporters. "I want to do everything I can to help others win that battle. I ride knowing millions of people living with cancer are cheering me on. They inspire me. That's why I'm asking you to join Team Lance and sponsor me as I ride in this year's Tour de France."
