I’ve chosen to use Lance Armstrong again as an example.

Not to continue to beat up on Mr. Armstrong, but because it’s current, relatable, and could be any of us.

Choosing to cheat robs people, figuratively and literally.

You destroy the trust of people.

You cheat yourself out of opportunities.

Also, because people still face and battle cancer every day and they still need support. The organization, though started by Lance Armstrong is bigger than Lance Armstrong.

It will also remind me to choose the high road/the right road, or Lance Armstrong could be me.
