WHY I'M INSPIRED

I'm proud to be riding in my 10th Pedal the Cause!

Statistically, they tell us that one in two men and one in three women will get cancer in their lifetime. When I hear this statistic, I start to think about my four sons, my two daughters, my wife, my parents, my brother, my sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends . . . . It is a scary thought to consider that cancer is not only something that is part of our past; it is part of our future.

Any one of us could be struck by this disease - and if we are, we want the best treatments and cutting edge research right here in our own backyard!! That is just what we have with the Siteman Cancer Center where my dad was treated and Children's Hospital whose wonderful staff cared for my niece. Thanks in part to funding from Pedal the Cause, we can make sure we continue to have these resources here in St. Louis!! That is why this year I will be riding 50 miles in Pedal the Cause.

Because of your past generosity, Pedal the Cause has raised nearly $25 Million to fund cancer research - 100% of which has gone directly to cancer research right here in St. Louis. But, until they find a cure, we need to continue to raise funds to protect our future and the futures of those we love.

Thank you to all who have donated to this cause in the past, and thank you for considering a donation this year!
