I am riding In Memory of Stan Pealer, Ann Pealer.

I am riding In Honor of Steffani Lautenschlager.


The reason why i ride, there are several reasons why. My family lost my Papa (Stan Pealer) in April of 2018 and my Granni Anni (Anni Pealer) in June of 2018 to cancer I ride in memory of them. Also, I ride in honor of my Aunt Steff (Steffani Lautenschlager) who has won her battle with brain cancer. All three of these people who I love were treated at Siteman Cancer Center, Siteman Cancer Center has done a lot for my family. Also, I ride for all who have lost their battle with cancer, currently battling cancer, or have beaten it. Pedal the Cause is one of the region's top cycling events but it so much more than that. It's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage and will power to end cancer. This will be my third year participating, I will be riding for the Powered by Hope group. I am excited to raise money that will help fund cancer research, sadly this year I will not be able to ride in the event because I am getting married that week. But I am still planning on riding my bike 70 miles to honor the event. The things that I enjoyed about this event were the people who participated in Pedal the Cause from the people who rode in the event to the volunteers. You could really see the love, sweat, and tears that they have put into this event to try and make the world a cancer-free world. 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.
