I am riding In Memory of Katie Vogel.


Eight years ago, my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and after receiving seed radiation treatment, he is now almost completely cancer-free. Six years ago, I watched one of my dearest friends and colleagues, Katie, battle a rare and fast-acting form of cancer that took her life shortly after her 30th birthday. In recent years, many of my colleagues have been diagnosed with cancer, as well, and some continue to battle it today. Watching my father and my friends and colleagues battle cancer has inspired me to join the fight against cancer by participating in the Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. My goal is to raise $1000 for cancer research and 100% of your donation will go to directly to this cause.

I plan to ride 20 miles on September 30th and I hope you will join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure.
