WHY I RIDE

Hello Pedal Friends & Family!!

Hope you have resolutely weathered the pandemic. It's been quite the year for all of us. How about we adopt optimism as our true north for the rest of the year!
PTC2021, my 12th ride, is in loving memory of Victoria: daughter - hero - Warrior Princess.
My ride has always been in honor of Victoria, but since December 2018, it has been in memory of Victoria and her hard fought 12-year battle with the anaplastic ependymoma brain tumor that took her life at age 28.
Riding with Team Victoria and now my daily work for Pedal the Cause, is the most fitting way I know to remember Victoria and thank the countless researchers that helped extend her life. It's pretty simple: Supporting cancer research is the surest way of sparing future "Victorias" from a devastating cancer diagnosis. The impact of funded research is already extending and saving lives each and every day.
Thank you for helping me honor Victoria. This will be the third Pedal the Cause without her at the finish line in-person, but her spirit is very much alive and well.
We're (you, me and Victoria) in this cause together! Let's do the work to fund the research that will give us a world without cancer!!

You and your support are appreciated beyond words.
With love and thanks and a smile --
David
