Viva Las Chicas will host their Second Annual bike ride Pedaling for Pink on March 2, 2013. A one day ride through Pinellas County, a 5-mile, 32-mile, and a 64-mile route, will raise money to help Tampa Bay families affected by a cancer diagnosis. This bicycling event is designed for families and diehard riders alike, with something for everyone. It is a day to celebrate life with loved ones, friends, and hopefully, new acquaintances! Register before January 1, 2013 and receive a $20 discount off the regular registration fee.
Formed as a grass-roots organization in 2002, Viva Las Chicas became a non-profit in 2006. As the organization has grown, so has the need to fund the various aspects of the mission, specifically assisting individuals and families after a cancer diagnosis. It was estimated that would be 117,580 new cases of cancer in Florida in 2012. Funds from Pedaling for Pink will remain here in our community as we reach out to our local families who are dealing with cancer. Be a part of something special! Register, donate, or volunteer today!

Viva Las Chicas's mission is threefold. To provide the tools, knowledge, and resource information needed to ensure early detection, and to provide resource information in the event of a diagnosis of cancer. To provide support, encouragement and compassion to individuals who are battling cancer and their families. And to work hand-in-hand with organizations such as the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC), Suncoast Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure, The Lance Armstrong Foundation, Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, The American Cancer Society and others to raise awareness and funds for research for a cure for this hideous disease. Together we do make a difference!
