WHY I RIDE

I am proud and excited to join Pedal the Cause for my tenth year in the fight against cancer.

100% of funds raised go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital. For every dollar raised, proof of concept research gains on average of 7 dollars in federal funding. 118 projects have been funded throughout the lifetime of Pedal. Check out all the projects funded to date here: Funded Research Projects

My first year participating, I rode for all the kids I had been touched by through volunteering at Children's Hospital. Over the years, the list of people I ride for grows - my mom, my grandpas, family members, friends, countless friend's parents and grandparents, and all the 'Ride for a Child' kids I've met that are truly an inspiration. I will continue to ride, for the millions of people I may or may not know, who's lives are impacted by cancer. One in two men and one in three women are odds the Pedal the Cause family is working towards changing through changing the trajectory of cancer research.

Join me on the road to finding a cure. Ride. Donate. Volunteer.
