I am riding In Memory of James Kopp.

I am riding In Honor of Katie Carnell.


I'm riding the PTC century this year in honor of my wife, Katie Carnell who is now 5 years cancer free, and in memory of my Grandpa James Kopp who passed away from cancer last year.

Five years ago life threw our family a curveball just after our youngest son was born. In late 2013 my wife Katie was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. This was a very difficult time for us but through the grace of God and the expert care she received from her medical team at Siteman she has now been cancer-free for 5 years. Throughout the treatment process we repeatedly experienced treatment options and information that wouldn't have been available without the type of research that this event helps to fund. We're exceptionally fortunate to have a world-class cancer treatment and research site so close to home here in St. Louis, please consider donating to help others that will benefit from it.

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.
