Why I ride: Dear Friends --
This will be my 7th Ride in honor of Victoria, and I'm excited as if it were my first!! Victoria had her 5th surgery last month and once again, is recovering beautifully. We have nicknamed her "Warrior Princess" for her proven ability to fight harder than almost anyone for a quality life despite the obstacles thrown in her path.
Let's make this year a banner year for Victoria and PTC by donating generously to Team Victoria. As you know, all donations raised provide direct funding for cancer research at Siteman and St Louis Children's Hospital.
Pedal funding allows research projects to get to the next level where they can qualify for much larger public grants. Just this week, a pancreatic cancer research projected funded with $400,000 of Pedal donations (your money) was granted $10.5M in public funds. On average, every Pedal dollar donated attracts $7 in public funds. That's an astounding ratio and really illustrates how Pedal fills a much needed gap between budding research and public grants. Think of Pedal as the venture capital of cancer research!!
Research is bringing about so many "rapid discoveries" that cures are at our fingertips for the first time in medical history. With your help, maybe we find VICTORIA'S CURE?
With heart-felt thanks AND LOVE FROM THE ENTIRE DRIER FAMILY,
GO TEAM VICTORIA!!! GO VICTORIA!!! GO PEDAL THE CAUSE!!!
