For our 7th year in a row, Kim and I will be riding in the Pedal the Cause bike challenge, which raises money for cancer research at the Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital. On Sunday, September 30th, we will be taking on the Two Bridges Challenge with our Bill Box's Blue, Red and Grey Team!

I am riding to help find cures for melanoma, colorectal and breast cancer - just a few of the cancers that have affected the lives of those close to me. As some of you know, Kim was diagnosed with melanoma in 2010 that fortunately was found early enough that it had not spread. My dad battled colorectal cancer in 2012 and is currently in remission. Kim's grandma lost a breast to breast cancer, and she and I both know too many women who have battled breast cancer (and some who we've lost). There are many other stories ? I'm sure each of your lives has been touched in some way by cancer.

I want to do my part by helping to raise funds for research so others can win the fight. Pedal the Cause supports early stage research projects that are not yet eligible for other funds such as government grants. Since 2010, $15.8 million raised by Pedal the Cause has funded over 57 adult and 27 pediatric cancer research projects including melanoma, colorectal and breast cancer research. Details about the projects funded can be found on Pedal's website.
