PA AND BOULDER, CO, SEPTEMBER 21, 2006… Teamwork
and support was the combination for success as Team Avengers – a
team of professionals from across the U.S. - raised $7,677 for
the LiveStrong Lance Armstrong Foundation. The team worked together
to raise funds and compete in the LiveStrong Challenge race in
Philadelphia, September 10, 2006. The event encourages athletes
to support each other, raise funds and to “inspire and empower
people living with cancer”.
Team Avengers was led by Team
Captain and Educational Consultant Mike Balotti of Jim Nolan and
Associates, who is a cancer survivor. Other 2006 members included
Elizabeth McGhee of Rancho Valmora and High Frontier, and Amanda
Thomas and Beth Laughlin of Confident Living, Inc., and Jude Rudolph
of ASCENT, Boulder Creek Academy and Northwest Academy. Balotti
and Rudolph completed the 100 mile bike ride, while McGhee, Thomas
and Laughlin all successfully completed the 10K running event.
“We had such a great time that we have already started planning
for next year’s event,” shared Balotti. “We’d
love to show up with an even bigger and stronger team in 2007.
We sincerely thank everyone that supported us this year and encourage
them to join us as Team Avengers participants in the future.”
Team Avengers has created a website to share photos and thoughts
on the 2006 event and to encourage others in the industry to sign
up for the 2007 event. (www.teamavengersonline.com). Those who
