WHY I RIDE

Pedal the Cause is more than the region's top cycling event. It's a movement, a battle, fueled by the will to end cancer. We have raised close to $16 million for cancer research in 7 years.

My wife and I have lost many people close to us and know many others who have been impacted by this terrible disease.

Everyone should know:
- 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will get cancer in our lifetime.
- National Cancer Institute funding has dropped from nearly $500 million in 2004 to $350-ish million in 2014.
- It takes charitable $$$ for preliminary research in order to apply for a NCI grant.

Pedal the Cause funded research is getting results!
