SALT LAKE CITY -- A cancer doctor's donation of an expensive bicycle she won has generated thousands of dollars for cancer research.

Last Tuesday, we shared the story of Dr. Heather Gilbert from the Huntsman Cancer Institute, whose name was selected by bike manufacturer Kona to receive a new-model bicycle.

The Kona Cadabra, which was her prize for winning, became part of a raffle for the past week on the blog People from all over the world donated for a chance to win.

The raffle ended Monday and raised $33,000, which will all go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
