WHY I RIDE

Why I have volunteered to raise funds again this year for Pedal the Cause .
This year is very difficult for my wife and I. Having CLL myself, I have been blessed and very fortunate that it has not progressed and required treatment. However, this is a very difficult year for many of my friends and in particular, a family member. This year I dedicate my fundraising efforts to our cousin, Officer Carl Walker, his wife Stacey and daughter Ashley. Carl was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two months ago. We must find a cure for this horrible disease that afflicts our loved ones. This disease has no age barrier.
This is the 9th year Kathy and I have raised money for Siteman Cancer Research and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital. The funds are raised by Pedal the Cause, an annual cycling event. Kathy and I have raised over $13,000 to date and hope to help exceed the $24,334,189 raised over the past 10 years. This money has helped fund over 118 cancer research projects and helped make great strides in cancer cures and treatments. We still have lots of work to do. Just remember, this money does not filter out to other programs or organizations . 100% of all money raised stays in St. Louis for cancer research. All types of research to help find what causes cancer period.

Please help support my $2,500 fund raising goal again this year.
God Bless
George & Kathy Bruner
