Lance Armstrong may be banned from competing in professional cycling events...but he's giving other charities a race for their money.

Donations are surging for Armstrong's "Livestrong" cancer charity.

Normally the foundation says it receives about $3200 a day in donations, but on Friday, the day Armstrong was banned from cycling, about 80 thousand dollars was donated.

Armstrong even took to Twitter to thank his supporters.

Livestrong will celebrate its 15th anniversary this October.
