Pedaling online – Cycling star boosts Web campaign

 | 

Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong has ventured into online fundraising with an endorsement of Kickstart.com, a Denver-based Web site that raises money for nonprofits, the Associated Press reports.

Kickstart.com serves 1,000 nonprofits online, providing customized Web pages and money each time a supporter views a page or uses

Kickstart.com services, such as its search engines or e-mail.

Nonprofit earnings on the site reach $7,000 to $10,000 a year, says Hughes Bakewell, Kickstart.com’s chief executive officer.

Armstrong, who won the 1999 Tour de France after overcoming cancer, will be featured in promotions and advertising for the site.
