ARLX002 American Lung Association seeks hams for 2000 ''Big Ride''

The American Lung Association is recruiting ham radio
''communicators'' to assist in its Big Ride Across America 2000. The
2000 ride--only the second to use ham radio operators--is the third
annual event to raise money and awareness for the American Lung
Association's fight against lung disease.

It's a 3500-mile bicycle trek from Seattle, Washington, to
Washington, DC, from June 19, 2000 to August 5, 2000. More than 850
cyclists have raised in excess of $7.2 million during the previous
rides.

Details are available at http://www.bigride.com. Volunteers can sign
up for the entire Ride or choose from one or more segments of the
country. The direct link to volunteer information is
http://www.bigride.com/Get/get.html. The Crew Registration Form on
that page lists the segment dates and locations.

To volunteer or to obtain more information about volunteer
responsibilities, contact Volunteer Support Manager Mark Ewert,
KB1ECH, bigride@lungusa.org or call toll free at 877-BIGRIDE
(877-244-7433).
