Breakaway from Cancer – Day 3: Livermore

Today at the Amgen Tour of California, we met some more amazing cancer survivors and their families, caregivers and advocates. Take for example survivors Andy, from California, and Lee, from upstate New York, who met at Breakaway two years ago and have been friends since.

In addition to Andy and Lee, we had a bunch of other great visitors at our booth, like Peggy Liou, a breast cancer survivor who fired the start gun at the beginning of today’s race.

Today our partner the Prevent Cancer Foundation hosted the Breakaway Mile, which was led by Breakaway Champion Bob Hammer, whose “Have a Ball” foundation has raised more than $1,000,000 to benefit 20 cancer organizations since its start in 2005.

Overall, the Livermore stage was yet another great day on tour. Next stop: Clovis!
