Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS), the largest private oncology/hematology practice in the Southeast, proudly served as a sponsor of the 2005 Dodge Tour de Georgia. The cycling event began April 19 in Augusta and ended April 24 in Alpharetta, with Discovery Channel Pro Cycling’s Tom Danielson capturing the title. Along the way, it will pass through Blairsville, Brasstown Bald, Dahlonega, Dalton, Fayetteville, Gainesville, Macon, and Rome.
Dr. Bruce Feinberg, President and CEO of GCS, said this event is great for a number of reasons.
“We are very excited to have been a part of the Tour this year. With Lance Armstrong, the epitome of cancer survivors, participating in possible his last race on American soil, and proceeds benefiting the Georgia Cancer Coalition, this event does wonders it terms of promoting cancer care and survivorship.”
GCS had a booth set up in the Healthy Georgia Expo at the Macon finish site.
According to its website, the Dodge Tour de Georgia is an annual, world-class, professional cycling stage race and series of city festivals across Georgia. Proceeds from the event benefit the Georgia Cancer Coalition, a statewide network of people and organizations working together to fight cancer. Dodge Tour de Georgia is sanctioned by the Union Cycliste Internationale and USA Cycling.
