  • Signing A Commemorative Shirt

    During the past year, I have occasionally, worn pictures of forum members on my biking shirt. Typically it is for a special ride dedicated to that person, when they happen to be in some phase of active treatment. I have decided to do a few century rides each year and I would like to them to honor as many tc survivors as possible. What I want to do is send a Livestrong shirt around for signature (the same as the book is) and I will wear this shirt for a portion of every century ride I do. It would be great if this could be done by the time the Livestrong Ride takes place. My ultimate goal (if I get accepted as a rider) is to wear it in the The Pennsylvania Perimeter Ride Against Cancer next year. That ride covers 500+ miles in six days, the link is attached http://www.pprac.net/index.htm. I would like everyone to sign it but I would like Scott to be the first. Scott, all I need is for you to send me your address and the shirt will be on its way.

          Stephany:
          You are more then welcome to sign the shirt. The way this usually works is that you send your address to Scott, he will send the shirt to you. After you sign it you simply send it to the next person who requested it, in this case it would be Don.
          Don: Thanks for the offer but the shirt is already on the way to Scott directly from LAF.org.

            Can this become an international signing 'event'? I'd like to participate, but don't want the unlucky sender (potentially Don) to get hit w/ the international mailing expense. I'd be happy to cover this cost, by reimbursing the sender.

              I'm hoping it becomes international, the disease is.

                Thats a cool idea Bill. I'd like to sign it also. Kman, after you sign it, if you can send it on to me that would be great

                  Kev:
                  Since I consider this a tc-cancer forum shirt, and you have the first event, Is it at all possible for you to take it on the Boston Marathon. I know you have team shirts to wear but I thought it might become a more inspriational item if it could be used to show what survivors can accomplish. Maybe Scott could bring it to Austin. I was even thinking of bringing it to Tobago for some scuba in honor of Don who, because of the BEP, can't dive anymore.

                      That would be very cool...

                      Maybe i could have my family hang on to it till i reach them,(they will most likely be towards the end of the race) and then carry it across the finish line or something? That would be cool to be able to say that, that shirt crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon!

                        That would be great, what an inspiration first step for our team shirt. It would also be a great time to let Kman99 sign it. I don't know what ink to use but make sure it won't come of in the wash (ever).

                          I think a black Sharpie permanent ink marker will work.

                              After all you have been through your signature alone is inspirational. Even though your younger then me I look up to you in many respects. I have been mountain climbing, skydiving, scuba diving, at 19 I was a combat team leader in Viet Nam, I have been in bar fights that looked like scenes from old western movies, once I even boxed a chimp in a side show and still in many respects you are the type of man I admire.
