I am riding In Memory of Paul Thompson.

WHY I'M INSPIRED

It's been 7 years since we lost my father-in-law Paul Thompson to cancer. Paul - Tommy to those that knew him - was a second father to me and I miss him every day. I plan to ride 10 miles on September 29 to honor his memory and to find a cure.

It's hard to find anyone these days whose life hasn't been affected by cancer. Friends and family all have stories to tell of those they love who are battling or have battled this awful disease. This is the 5th year I'm participating in Pedal the Cause. 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. Not only do 100% of the profits go to funding research for a cure, but each year these is a sense of community, purpose, and hope.

Please consider supporting me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. This year my goal is to raise $375. Let's make cancer a thing of the past.

Thank you!
