All of us have been affected by cancer. You may have had cancer or are fighting it now. All of us have a family member, friend or coworker that has been affected. Pedal the Cause is more than the region's top cycling event. It's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer.

I am very proud to be part of Pedal the Cause for my fifth ride and helping however I can to create a world without cancer. In 2018 two of our sons, Zachary and Syd joined me and did their first PTC. All of us did the 50 mile ride. In 2019 Stella was going to ride. All four of us were signed up. Stella and I had to relocate to Covington, Louisiana for my work. The move was all consuming and we could not do PTC as a family. We are back and will ride in 2020! We are excited to join Team Ellen!

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by donating to my fifth PTC ride, and give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Please do feel any pressure to donate and I certainly will understand if you are not able to donate. Thank you for any support you can do and please wish us luck during the training and on the PTC ride in September!
