      The beginning of a new season is always rife with excitement. For some, it means lining up with a
      new team, new sponsors, new kits, or new goals. For others, it’s a chance to build upon the previous
      season’s achievements, to reconnect with returning team mates, or to reminisce about old rivals and
      classic moments from last year’s races. Regardless, everyone brings a fresh sense of camaraderie
      and a renewed energy to the starting line.

      But before the season even begins— it seems— it inevitably nears to an end. Nostalgia fills each
      training ride with memories of wins, near crashes, and glorious break-aways. The hills feel like flats,
      the flats feel like descents, and you savor every exhilarating moment. At some point, you realize that
      there is only ONE final race weekend remaining. ONE more weekend to stomp on the pedals. ONE
      last opportunity to make a name for yourself and for your team.

      Do you have what it takes to be an ACC CYCLING CHAMPION?

      The Wake Forest University Cycling Team would like to welcome everyone to the 2008 ACC Cycling
      Championships. For the Wake Forest University Cycling Team, being able to host the last race of the
      season is a new and exciting experience. With each successive championship weekend, we aim to
      build the program by adding new events, new technologies, and by pushing the limits of what was
      previously thought possible. We hope that you enjoy yourself and, most importantly, take away a
      sense that you have participated in something spectacular, something memorable, and something
      above and beyond … the “Championship Experience.”

      Enclosed you will find a schedule of events, directions, and contact information. Please use this guide
      to answer all of your questions. However, if your questions are not fully answered, please feel free to
      shoot me an e-mail at QuadJRanch@aol.com.

      All the best and good luck,

The mission of Together for Kids™ is to improve the health of America’s children by
serving as a catalyst for fundraising to support pediatric research, clinical care,
medical education, family services and advocacy through our member children’s hospitals.

Together for Kids (www.togetherforkids.org) is a national alliance of children’s hospitals and other hospi-
tals serving children, dedicated to building a healthier future for America’s kids. The organization provides
an urgently needed national fundraising mechanism for its member hospitals, helping them care for seri-
ously ill children and tackle the toughest health issues facing all kids, with a focus on childhood obesity
and injury prevention. America’s children are facing increasing challenges to their health and well-being,
ranging from the growing numbers of uninsured families to the steadily climbing statistics on childhood
obesity. At the same time, funding for children’s healthcare from public and private payers is steadily
shrinking. In the past, charitable organizations have played a valuable role in generating financial support
for children’s hospitals, yet there remained an unmet need among many children’s hospitals. A significant
gap existed in this support system, as children’s hospitals around the country, in both small communi-
ties and major metropolitan areas, had no access to a national fundraising mechanism. In answer to this
need, and the needs of children facing serious health issues, Together for Kids was founded. As a new kind
of inclusive fundraising organization, Together for Kids seeks to provide children’s hospitals throughout
the country with the resources they need to treat children affected by serious illness or injury, as well as to
tackle today’s toughest pediatric health issues. Together for Kids ensures that hospitals committed to the
health and wellness of children can have access to funds for advanced medical technology, expert medical
staff, up-to-date treatment options, community education and advocacy programs, updated facilities and
the latest insights in medical research. Established in 2006, Together for Kids is a national, not-for-profit
alliance made up of 34 children’s hospitals and hospital systems, representing 53 individual facilities in 47
U.S. cities, all dedicated to building a healthier future for America’s children.
