I am riding In Memory of Papa Manns, Dennis & Jan Manns, Kenny Heater.

I am riding In Honor of Marilyn and Scotty Scott.


On June 18, 2020 I received my cancer diagnosis and over the next seven months the teams at Siteman Cancer Center did what they do best and saved my life. While we were worried about the future the Siteman Professionals were always there for us with answers to our questions, they had a clear and concise plan which was regularly communicated, and every person we encountered throughout our journey was thoughtful and patient.

In an effort to give back we participated with the Contegra Construction team last year and soon learned just how much fun it is to participate in Pedal The Cause. As ride day approached I was excited to not only find that we had far exceeded our initial goals, but also that the ride was scheduled for the same day as my 12 month anniversary of Ringing the Bell. We proceeded to complete the 20 mile ride on our tandem bicycle in just about 2 hours on that wonderfully cool and sunny day while appreciating every emotional crank of the pedal and with just a few tears of joy.

This year we will be riding 11 miles on Saturday and to celebrate my second anniversary of ringing the bell we are also riding 20 miles on Sunday. I have a personal goal to raise at least $2,500 and I am asking for your help in this journey to find and support cancer research by donating to my ride. It matters and we can do this. Give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will fund lifesaving cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Pedal the Cause is more than the region's largest cancer fundraiser. It's a way of life, a celebration, a family and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer.
I am grateful for your consideration,
