LIVESTRONG Foundation
July 28, 2009

I started volunteering with the Lance Armstrong Foundation in May 2008 upon my relocation to Austin, TX. I contacted the LAF and they immediately and professionally responded and started my application. I do several projects for the LAF, including office work, database maintenance and the Austin LIVESTRONG Challenge. It is obvious that the LAF recruits, attracts and retains the TOP talent in its leaders, associates, employees, advocates, volunteers and partners, etc. This strength in talent along with the team's incredible belief in the LAF's solid mission makes the difference at the LAF. The LAF continues to stay strong, even when the economy has been soft. The LAF's programs are incredible, thus bringing more exposure to the mission. The LAF is breaking more ground now on a global basis to continue its mission to wipe out cancer. Moreover, the LAF does an incredible job with its staff and volunteers during the LIVESTRONG Challenges -- The events are superior. As a volunteer, I am treated as one of the family. At the LAF office, the enviornment is so friendly and welcoming. The kindness and strong belief in the LIVESTRONG mission is what makes the HUGE DIFFERENCE at the LAF. LIVE STRONG, Cherri LAF Volunteer

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their growth. The LAF has such strong partnerships. The LAF seems to be positioned well to fight and attack cancer on a truly huge global basis. I am proud to be part of the action in any capacity I can be. LIVESTRONG.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be worried about not doing as good as a job as Mr. Doug Ulman.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the relationships with others involved in the cause and mission.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed to the mission. Very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and just great.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

wipe out cancer or at least put the "hurt" on it. It would be great to really wipe out cancer globally.

Ways to make it better...

I could think of some constructive criticism to say. I have nothing constructive to offer at this time.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the economy, spending and grants. Like all nonprofits, the LAF probably experiences the same challenges.

One thing I'd also say is that...

LIVESTRONG. Lance Armstrong truly is incredible for using his own cycling talents to give back to the LAF's mission. He is such an example of one of the great volunteers. What an inspirational person he is!
