WHY I RIDE

Back in 1999 I lost my Mom to Pancreatic cancer. I moved home from my last semester as a graduate student to help take care of her along with my Dad and family. When she was diagnosed, it was at stage 4. What a helpless feeling we were all left with. Living with a loved one, especially your mom, who is in an advance stage of cancer has a profound effect on you. Health, lifestyle and the need to help others becomes action, not a consideration. In order to make major progress, we need everyone to get involved.

Some progress has been made over the years on identifying Pancreatic cancer, but not enough. Organizations like Pedal The Cause is key to helping us raise awareness and fundraise to find a cure. Pedal The Cause donates 100% of the funds raised to local organizations. That's a direct impact on those around us who need help. Turn your passion for cycling, or your need to to good, into helping someone survive cancer.

Ride, Volunteer or donate. Don't wait until it's this close to home to feel the need to get involved. Because 1 in 3 is too many.
