Message: About a month ago, Mary Eggers from Rochester NY saw that Lance Armstrong was coming to the University of Buffalo to give a speech. She playfully sent out a twitter challenge to Lance for a 50 meter kick off prior to his speech, to raise money for "Teens Living With Cancer". Lance accepted, and a month later they raised $51,000 for the organization, and had the kick off yesterday. Mary is an unbelieveable woman - and after yesterday, she will always be known as the woman that BEAT Lance Armstrong :) Here's a little video footage about it. Good stuff.
