I am riding In Memory of Eli Abeles & Fred Skor.


Everyone has been affected by cancer. And Cancer SUCKS. I am spinning in memory of my dear childhood friend Eli Abeles, who lost a quick and courageous battle against kidney cancer last fall, and in memory of my grandfather, Fred Skor, who lost a fierce and too quick battle against leukemia in 2007. Together, with our support, incredible doctors and researchers can continue to find ground breaking drugs and treatments that are helping people fight these terrible diseases.

Pedal the Cause is more than the region's top cycling event. It's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer. It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride, and give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

On Sunday, September 29, these girls and I, along with plenty of others, will participate in a 2 hour spin while our husbands ride 25-100 miles, and our kids bike for 20 minutes, with Big Ten Bicycling team- currently one of this year's top fundraising teams! Please donate if you can to help in the fight against cancer.

Thanks in advance for your support! xoxo, Meredith
