I am riding In Memory of Eli Abeles.


Just over a year ago, one of our good friends, Eli Abeles, was diagnosed with metastatic renal cancer. After a long and very difficult year, Eli passed away last week.

My wife, Sarah, and I (along with so many of our friends in St. Louis) will be participating in Pedal The Cause to help fund cancer research in loving memory of Eli and in honor of his family.

I will be riding 50 miles on my road bike, and Sarah will be Spinning along with Stacy and friends.
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.

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.
