I am riding In Memory of Uncle Dave Hopper.


I ride in memory of my Uncle Dave Hopper who battled prostate cancer, and passed in 2019. Thanks to cancer research & lots of support from friends, family, and medical staff, Dave was able to live 7+ years after his diagnosis despite the doctors giving him a 4-5 year prognosis. Even though I didn't get to spend as much time with him as I hoped, he still had an incredible impact on my life. Although he was battling cancer for most of my life, he always had a smile on his face and always put others before himself. I have been watching my family participate in Pedal the Cause since 2015, and I'm excited to finally be able to ride in it myself. The ride is for ages 14 and up.

I also ride in honor of Christina Weyers who is just beginning her cancer battle, and for others out there who are fighting against cancer.

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. 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.

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.
