LIVESTRONG Day is the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s one-day initiative to raise awareness and funds for the cancer fight. LIVESTRONG Day 2008 will occur on Tuesday, May 13.
As most of you know I work at the Lance Armstrong Foundation. LIVESTRONG Day is the biggest day of the year for us. So this year Lance and Doug (the President of the Foundation) decided to send the entire foundation to local events all over the US. Some people are going to Vegas, some are going Oklahoma, and other to New York and New Hampshire. We did not get to choose where we were going or what we were going to be doing.
Last week or so, I found out where I am going. Looks like I am headed to the bluegrass state. The home of Muhammad Ali as well as the Kentucky Derby. I am headed to Louisville, Kentucky.
My event is to go to the Cincinnati Reds AAA affiliate Louisville Bats baseball game and hand out wristbands. But here is the coolest part, I am about 90% sure I will get to throw out the first pitch. So I am flying out the morning of the 13th and returning the nite of the 14th.
Since I have found out I am going to Louisville, I have been doing a little research to see what I can do while I am there. Makers Mark Lounge and the Louisville Slugger Museum are two of the stops I am planning on making.
Should be a fun time, and I will def take photos to share.
