Catamounts Against Cancer was started by a group of students looking for a way to get something more out of riding bikes. By participating in this event it gives us something to ride for. Its something we can do for all of our and your loved ones that have been effected by this terrible disease. While the group was started by students, it is not by any means limited to students. Employees of Western Carolina University, and the Jackson County Cycling community also make up our group. All working together to reach a common goal and use the sport of cycling as a spring board to a cure for cancer.
We ask that all of you take the time to make a contribution. Money is crucial and something that anybody can help with. Once you've made your contribution we'd like to see you do one more thing for us. Spread the word about our group.
