I am riding In Memory of Harry Van Peteghem and Albert Veireman.


We all know people affected by cancer. Some fight and survive, some fight and lose. Unfortunately, Harry Van Peteghem and Albert Veireman lost. Harry was one of the best bakers in Belgium. He made the meanest pastries, bread and cakes. He was always up for a meal at a nice restaurant and his laugh was contagious. He worked hard and played hard. Albert, was THE best grandpa! Always ready with advice and hard candy. He loved his family, worked hard and found time to enjoy life as well. Going to restaurants with friends and family and going fishing were some of his favorite things to do.

After I rode for Pedal the Cause in 2018, I was deeply touched by the magnitude of people that want to make a difference by riding for a great cause. So I decided to be part of that again. I am proud to join Pedal the Cause for a fourth year 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.
