WHY I RIDE

This is my 8th year riding in Pedal the Cause and each year this seems to gain more significance in my life. In fact, this past year I am happy to announce that I have joined the Board of Directors. Cancer has impacted all of us in some way and It continues to hit close to home for me and my family. My father was diagnosed and successfully treated for prostate cancer recently. This year I am again riding for my dad and again for my hero warrior nephew, Aiden Howard Maul, and all of the kids like him that are dealing with this horrible reality. Aiden is now 12, he was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor in Dec. of 2012 then battled hard and won. The cancer then relapsed to his lungs and lymph nodes in Dec. 2013 and he battled and won again.

I am also riding for my grandpa, Kenneth Westrich, who passed just over 4 years ago, lung cancer. I love you Grandpa, still miss you.

I am excited to continue the fight against cancer by participating. PTC has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through this annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer. PTC gives 100% of all money raised to local cancer research.

Thank you and God Bless
