About: (Est. 1997) “The LIVESTRONG Foundation provides free cancer support services to help people cope with the financial, emotional and practical challenges that accompany the disease. Created in 1997 by cancer survivor and philanthropist Lance Armstrong, the Foundation is known for its powerful brand — LIVESTRONG — and for its advocacy on behalf of survivors and their families. With its iconic yellow LIVESTRONG wristband, the Foundation has become a symbol of hope and inspiration around the world. Since its inception, the Foundation has served 2.5 million people affected by the disease and raised more than $500 million to support cancer survivors. One of America’s top cancer non-profit organizations, the Foundation enjoys a four-star rating from Charity Navigator and has been recognized by the National Health Council and the Better Business Bureau for its excellent governance, high standards and transparency.”

Ed.’s Notes: To add insult to injury, Lance Armstrong has not only been stripped off his Tour de France wins, his name has been scraped off the logo of his foundation. Take that. A few more images below (or after the jump) and more work and relevant story links at Rigsby Hull’s case study.
Select quote: “The LIVESTRONG Foundation also unveiled its new logo at the Assembly, a visual change designed to underscore that the LIVESTRONG ethos — the belief in fighting for people affected by cancer today — is not abstract and, in fact, drives all of the Foundation’s work. The new logo is a natural next step in the Foundation’s evolution and is intended to provide the Foundation’s corporate and marketing partners — and the public — with an unmistakable way of communicating that buying LIVESTRONG-branded gear or supporting the Foundation equates to helping those affected by cancer right now.”
Plans are in development for coming back to Europe in Spring of 2018 with the current top contender host city of Barcelona.
