Steiner Ranchers Lead ATLAS Ride in Fight Against Cancer

Steiner Ranch residents Nathasha Collmann and Kirsten Mulligan are celebrating the start of summer this year in a different way… joining the Sense Corp Texas 4000 team in their fight against cancer. On Saturday, June 7, at 8:00 a.m. the Texas 4000 team will start their 4500-mile, 70-day cycling journey from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska-sharing hope, knowledge, and charity along their way. Texas 4000 is an organization consisting of over forty passionate, young individuals, the majority being University of Texas students, whose lives have been touched by cancer. The organization has donated over $1,060,578.00 to MD Anderson Cancer Center and The American Cancer Society in the last five years. Their goal is to raise over $350,000.00 this year alone.

Collmann and Mulligan (along with other area community members) are leading the planning committee for the ATLAS Ride-the first day of the Texas 4000-which rides the 70 miles from Cedar Park to Lampasas. “I am so humbled by these college students who will spend their summer cycling through the states, visiting hospitals and cancer centers, raising funds, and instilling hope that we will find a cure to cancer. I am so proud to share a tiny part of their journey,” says Mulligan.

Our goal as the ATLAS planning committee is to facilitate a “grassroots” community support for this amazing cause. Collmann says, “It feels good to be a part of something larger than myself. This is an opportunity for me to use my time and my talent to make a contribution…to make a difference in the world.”

Both say that they have been overwhelmed by the number of individuals and businesses who have supported them in this worthy cause. To find out more about Texas 4000 for Cancer’s ATLAS Ride or to ride, volunteer, or sponsor, Steiner Ranch residents can visit or
