My name is Carrie, and not only do I love Cycling, but I love Cycling with a purpose. I am a Cancer Survivor, and I have chosen to ride in the 2019 Pedal the Cause in memory of my dear, loving Aunt Mary Jo Schwable. Aunt Mary left us June 1st, 2018 of Pancreatic Cancer at the age of 64. I have her spirit and drive in me, and I plan on riding with her by my side. I am also riding in memory of Peggy White-James, a wife, mother, and friend to all. Her daughter, Laura, and I have known each other since we were five. I also am riding on Team Clare, which is in honor of Clare Blase. Clare was a fifteen year old Nerinx Hall student who left us way to early. I have grown close to her mom, Cynthia Smith, and it is my pleasure to ride with her and the rest of Team Clare this year.

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause 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.
