I'm riding: The Beast

Team: Big Black Dog

ID: 111078

Lifetime total: $12,806.63

I am riding In Memory of Gail & Sam Vandover, Gary Davis, David Shepard.

I am riding In Honor of Tracy Gullickson Vandover, Jan Chartrand, Doug Mars, Carl Cowles, Kierstin Anderson.


I ride in order to raise cancer awareness. I have lost both of my parents (Sam Vandover in 2013 & Gail Vandover in 2018) to this horrible disease. My wife, Tracy, is a breast cancer survivor and many more of our family & close friends have been affected by this disease. I choose to draw a line in the sand and help in the fight to find a cure!

I will be riding in support of Tracy Vandover, Jan Chartrand, Doug Mars, Carl Cowles, Bridget DuMont, and Kierstin Anderson.

I am proud to once again join Team Big Black Dog for this year's Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer! I will be riding in "The Beast" century (100 miles) event on Sunday September 25th, 2022.

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 personal 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.

Please consider making a donation to this cause. With your help, I am confident that we will beat this disease!My Link
