I am proud to join Pedal the Cause and Team Powered by Hope 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. I along with my wife, Johnelle, ride in memory of our daughter, Kailie, who had Leukeima. I have always fought this battle from the other side of the wheel...the SAG wheel. I have always supported a cycling team with support and gear while they train and fundraise to fight cancer. I decided it's my time to get out there and try the bike and I love it! I never thought I could do it, but thinking about these cancer patients, especially my little girl, gave me courage. I watched Kailie fight the battle bravely, never saying she couldn't do it, always pressing forward. I will press forward and am honored to be a part of the Powered by Hope family!

I need your help! I will ride the miles, but I need generous donors to help fund the mission! 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.

Thank you for joining me in the fight against cancer!
