"Stan Havlick never knew that with one touch of his rear bicycle wheel in the Pacific Ocean in 1992, a 17-year journey would take his front wheel to the West Coast of the Caspian Sea in Eastern Russia. Stan’s six coast-to-coast adventures took him across 19 countries, 11 states, three Australian provinces, and required over 20,000 miles of demanding and dedicated cycling, raising money for the Colorado Cancer Foundation.
The Colorado Cancer Foundation (CCF) is pleased to announce that Johannes "Yo" Schmidt will be acting Race Director for the Eldorado Run for the Cure again this year. With nearly two decades of sales and marketing experience in the outdoor sports marketplace, including nine years with Newton Running, Johannes is an invaluable asset to the CCF.
"Stan Havlick was a busy bank vice president back in the fall of 1979 when he received a wake-up call: a family member had been diagnosed with cancer. Rather than wringing his hands, Havlick put his business skills to work, teaming up with researcher William Robinson to start one of the earliest Boulder Country road races, the University of Colorado Cancer Research Run, in the fall of 1980.
