With my Bat Mitzvah coming up in March 2021 I got to thinking what I could do to give back as part of a mitzvah project.

For the past two years my family and I have ridden in Pedal the Cause, an annual bike ride for cancer research. We got involved because our friend, Eli, was diagnosed with cancer and unfortunately passed away last year. Pedal the Cause donates 100% of the funds raised to local cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids - right here in St Louis! It?s funding like theirs that will help people diagnosed with cancer, like Eli was, live a strong and healthy life.

For my Mitzvah project I have created a team called Marah Mitzvah Miles and we are going to be have our own event, a fundraising bike journey, on Sunday, September 13 from 2 to 4 PM. I would love for you all to be a part of my Mitzvah project and help me raise more funds for Pedal the Cause to fight cancer.

It's going to be great afternoon! In addition to the ride we will have a music, snacks and tons of fun!

It would really be great to ask family and friends to join us so we get an amazing turnout on this day.

You can sign up to ride in our 6 mile course for only $25 and set your fundraising goal to any amount that you want.

Can?t thank you enough in advance for joining me on the Mitzvah Miles Team and can?t wait to see how great a fundraising job our team can do.

Bikes or scooters welcome! All riders will need a helmet and to sign a waiver.
