I am riding In Memory of Bob Sontag and Cassie Gorecki.

I am riding In Honor of Nicole Sontag and Nichole Kutmas.


I am proud to again join Pedal the Cause and their mission to create a world without cancer. My goal for this year is to ride 100 miles and to raise $1,000.

I hate that so many people are impacted by cancer every day. This past December my father-in-law, Bob Sontag, passed away after a battle with grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma. In December of 2019 we lost our dear friend Cassie Gorecki to sarcoma, a rare cancer that accounts for about 1% of adult cancers. Cassie was only 35 years old. My sister-in-law is also a survivor of endometrial cancer.

While I wish I could say these are the only instances of someone I care about having to fight this terrible disease, they are not... a childhood friend, a high school friend, a college friend's dad, a sorority sister, a neighbor, a grandparent, multiple coworkers... I'm riding in Pedal the Cause to help raise funds for cancer research, as it takes world-class research to create a world without cancer.

Please help by donating to my ride, and know that 100% of your donation will fund innovative cancer research.
