I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. 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.

This is my 4th year riding in Pedal the Cause. I will be pedaling in memory of my dad and best friend, Eli, who was diagnosed with stage 4 renal carcinoma in September 2017. Sadly, our dad's courageous battle ended on Monday, September 10, 2018 just 1 year and 4 days after he was diagnosed. We now ride in his memory.

Currently there is no cure for kidney 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.

Thank you on behalf of my dad, our family and all those impacted by cancer.
