I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in the annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

Why is this important to me? I have lost several friends to cancer. I have a friend who is currently battling breast cancer, two who have prostate cancer, another who just passed from cancer. Another friend successfully defeated cancer. I lost an uncle to cancer. I am dedicating this ride to Monica, Nancy, Anne, Graham, Bob, Hal, Milton, Tim, and others whose lives have touched me and who have been impacted in some way by cancer. Think about those who you know who have been changed by cancer, either good or bad. We all know someone who has been touched by cancer. Let's rid the earth of this horrible disease once and for all.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have committed to raise at least $1000 for cancer research. 100% of your donation will go to directly to this cause, but I'm not going to stop at just $1000 -- help me blow this commitment away. Last year I achieved YELLOW JERSEY status by raising over $2500. Help me do it again this year.

I plan to ride 100 miles during the event at the end of September and I hope YOU will join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure.
