I am riding In Memory of Bill Boxdorfer.


On March 23, 2014, Bill Boxdorfer lost his battle with cancer. Obviously, it was difficult for our family. So, as a coping method for Matt and I, along with our kids, we decided to ride in Pedal The Cause. We could not help Bill but we decided to do something to help others and to fight for a cure to cancer. We formed this team and have had family and friends ride with us. It's been an incredible experience and a great way to honor and remember Bill, as well as many other people.

I'd like to invite anyone who is interested to ride with us, or join our team as a volunteer. It's a fun team and the cause is critical. Think about it! We would love to have you and we cannot say enough about the Pedal experience.

If you can't join us, I would appreciate your donation. Each year I have a list of people who have passed away taped to my bike and I ride in their memory. And then I have another list of people fighting cancer and living proof people, and I ride in their honor. I plan to do that again this year and would love to ride in honor of whoever your donation is dedicated to, so please include that when donating to my ride.

In five years our little team has raised over $169,000! We've had a lot of fun; great parties, incredible jerseys and shirts, and a lot of laughs. That's more than we ever imagined. Last year I had a personal best in my own fundraising, raising over $5,000. I have committed to raising at least $2,500 again myself, but I need your help to do that.

I have to add that through this Pedal journey we have found an incredible, loving, crazy, supportive community, all working towards a world without cancer. We love the Pedal family!

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by donating to my 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.

Thank you for your support and encouragement. Remember the goal is A WORLD WITHOUT CANCER.
