Since grade school Dave & I have been together through Bonhomme Football, Ballwin Baseball & Lafayette Football. Dave's parents always there with a ride or a meal after many of those practices. Dave was there on my first date with Kris in high school. I was there when Dave met his wife, Patty, on Spring Break in college. Phi Delt fraternity brothers at Mizzou. Best Man in each other's weddings. Countless days spent fishing. Spending time together as he fought his prostate cancer for the past 6 years. Sadly, Dave lost his battle last March but the bigger war against Cancer continues.

Last year was my first year to ride in Pedal the Cause. I was blessed to ride with Dave and the entire Hopper family and to be a part to the Pedal the Cause community. I know Dave would want me to continue his fight against cancer so I am returning for year 2! . I have committed to raise $500 towards cancer research. 100% of the funds go to research right here in St. Louis. Please contribute if you can. If you can't, then please just join me in a prayer to end this horrible disease.
