Better than Ever, an Arizona Cancer Center-based fitness and fundraising program, invites the community to participate in the 2nd Annual Bike Training Program to complete the 35-mile or 66-mile event of El Tour on Nov. 17, 2007. Better Than Ever has training programs designed for beginners, seasoned riders, and all skill levels in between. In exchange for training, participants are asked to raise funds for the Arizona Cancer Center. One hundred percent of the funds raised go directly to cancer research and prevention at the Center. Since its first program in September 2000, Better Than Ever has encouraged more than 2,500 people of all ages, sizes, and fitness levels to become more fit while raising awareness and more than $1.3 million for research at the Arizona Cancer Center.

Starting Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2007, the Bike Training Program will provide participants with weekly training rides led by volunteer coaches from Sabino Cycles. Participants also will receive a training packet with a suggested training schedule, training advice, educational lectures, and numerous social events with fellow Better Than Ever bikers. In return for the training program and coaching, program participants are asked to raise $250 for the Arizona Cancer Center. If you would like to train on your own but still be involved with fund raising for the Arizona Cancer Center, the Better Than Ever program invites you to be a part of their team by raising $100 for cancer research and prevention. Whether you are a seasoned rider or just a beginner, Heather Alberts, Founder of Better Than Ever, invites you to join her at the Kick Off for the 2nd Annual Better Than Ever Training Program:
