Team: Team Siteman

ID: 198901

Lifetime total: $800.00

I am riding In Memory of Robert Schwartz.


I ride in honor of those who lost the battle; my father and my grandma and those currently fighting; my aunt and my uncle. I ride to help raise funds for The Siteman Cancer Center to continue to fund cancer research which leads to Phase 1 Clinical trials. My coworkers and I manufacture personalized vaccines for multiple cancers and cellular therapies for Leukemia. Normally we are not informed of the patient's outcomes, but we have heard that several had their cancers cured.

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause for a second year in the fight against cancer. Last year I took on the 28 miler. This year, I am taking it on again. 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.

In November 2022, Pedal the Cause announced a total annual donation of $4,543,878 to Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital to fund world-class cancer research. Research on specific cancers including breast, head and neck, lung, prostate, pancreatic and lymphoma are among the 12 projects that will benefit from $2.7 million in new grants announced by Siteman Cancer Center through its Siteman Investment Program in 2022. Pedal the Cause is proud to be the major contributor of funds for these grants, which seed some of the most promising and innovative ideas in cancer research.

Since 2010, Pedal the Cause has donated $40,827,503, funding 203 adult and pediatric cancer research projects in St. Louis.

Please support my efforts by donating to my fundraiser, and 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.
