Sierra Welch '11, Texas 4000

Every year Texas 4000 competitively selects University of Texas students for an 18-month program designed to cultivate the next generation to lead the fight against cancer. Texas 4000 empowers each student to raise $4,500, ride 1,500 training miles with his/her team, volunteer more than 50 hours in the community, and play an active role in planning every aspect of the ride to Alaska by attending weekly meetings and taking leadership positions within the team.

I'm honored to have carried hundreds of names, tears, strength, hugs, love, and stories in my heart all the way to Alaska. But the fight against cancer doesn't end here. We have 5 more days on the road as a part of Texas 4000 and then we are challenged to find a new way to spread hope, knowledge and charity to the cancer fighters and care givers everywhere.  I can’t wait for this new chapter of my life to begin – bring it on world.
