We are a four women cycling team from Colorado committed to competing in the Race Across AMerica (RAAM) in June 2012.  RAAM is known as “The World’s Toughest Bicycle Race” and is one of the most respected and longest endurance event in the world.  We will

We will be riding in support of LiveWell Colorado a state-wide nonprofit organization whose goal is to decrease the growing trend toward obesity throughout the state of Colorado by inspiring healthy eating and an active lifestyle.  While Colorado is often touted as America’s “leanest” state, we are not immune to the growing health crisis of obesity.  It is our intention to bring awareness and financial support to LiveWell Colorado by modeling the importance of active living across the age span and by hosting several fund-raising events over the next many months.Read more about LiveWell Colorado by clicking on our tab above or by visiting the LWC website at
