The Arizona Cancer Center starts its 11th year of Better Than Ever training program with an information expo on Wednesday.

According to a press release, the program encourages people to make exercise a regular part of their day and had helped more than 3000 people train for various events while raising more than $1.6 million for women’s cancer research.

The training program for the 40 and 66 mile versions of El Tour de Tucson begin on Sept. 7, 2010.

Marisa Allen, the program’s coordinator, said participants must try to do their best in raising between $100 and $275, but will not have to make up the difference if they don’t raise that much.
