WHY I RIDE

I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in the 10th 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.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have committed to raise $2500 for cancer research and 100% of your donation will go to directly to this cause.

I am riding for the following people:
My Grandmother who currently has cancer- too many places to list
My cycling buddy's wife who currently has colon cancer and putting up one heck of a fight
My niece who is beating hodgkins lymphoma
My co-worker who recently beat thyroid cancer
My friend's father who if fighting colon cancer, he may not win the war, but he's enjoying everyday he has with family
In memory of Capt. Ed who I admire for how he fought and the legacy he left behind earlier this year
My niece who beat cancer, had her 5 yr visit in 2011 and is now a RN paying it forward
A friend who is an amazing inspiration of the man we all wish we could be who has faced cancer multiple times. He is still facing ongoing treatment, and the reason I
got involved with PTC in 2013
While undergoing chemo 4yrs ago my friend's son was senselessly killed in New Orleans. RIP Thomas- I'll see you at the finish line with your Dad once again
My Uncle who beat colon cancer
In memory of my work buddy's little brother who was taken far too young
My friend's wife who had a double mastectomy and underwent reconstructive surgery for 4+ years due to massive side effects
My late Grandfather who lost his battle with lung and liver cancer
My late Grandmother who beat breast cancer, but later passed due to old age/Alzheimers
My Uncle who beat skin cancer
My Aunt who beat breast cancer, but then lost her life too early
My childhood friend since Kindergarten who has reoccurring skin cancer
