And after years of denials, Armstrong admitted earlier this year he used performance enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France seven times.Officials at Livestrong, which announced the split on Tuesday, said the foundation remains strong and committed to helping cancer patients worldwide through its survivorship programs.Armstrong, who started the charity in 1997 as the Lance Armstrong Foundation, was pushed off the board of directors in October and the organization later changed its formal name to Livestrong.In a statement, Livestrong officials said the foundation is “deeply grateful” to Nike.”Together, we created new, revolutionary ways of thinking about how non profits fuel their mission and we proud of that,” the foundation said.Livestrong officials say the charity remains on solid financial ground.”This news will prompt some to jump to negative conclusions about the foundation future.
