New Jersey Devil David Clarkson will be in a battle!  Only instead of battling Darren McCarty or Chris Neil, he will be teaming up with seven-time Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong in a battle against Cancer.

In 2008, Clarkson and the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League launched a program called Clarky's Kids to "provide children from Grand River Hospital’s POGO (Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario) Satellite Centre the opportunity to experience the excitement of a Kitchener Rangers game and visit with players and coaches in and out of the hospital. As well, this program continues to raise funds that aid in the support of local families and siblings dealing with a child that has cancer."

As of today, David has raised $8,710 of his goal of $20,000.  If you'd like to place a pledge in David's honor, you can do so by visiting his Ride With Lance 2010 Page. You can also place your pledge in David's Honor Roll by dedicating your pledge to someone you know who is living with, fought, won, or lost their battle with this terrible disease.

Ride With Lance 2010 will take place on August 28, 2010 in Kitchener, Ontario, with proceeds going to cancer programs and patient care for those living with cancer in Ontario.
