Start time: 07:30 AM

I am riding In Memory of Elise McIntosh.


Once again I proudly ride in memory of my mother, Elise, who passed away on July 9, 2017 after a fierce but courageous battle with a very aggressive and rare cancer - liposarcoma. She was so brave and such a fighter, but this awful disease took my mother away from us way too soon. I am hopeful that the research funded by PTC will hopefully find a cure for liposarcoma and all the other cancers that take too many of our loved ones every year.

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. 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.

This is my 6th Pedal The Cause event. For the second consecutive year I will be riding the metric century. This is a very challenging ride, but this is my way of showing my commitment to this awesome cause, but I need your help to help me raise as much money as possible to make a difference in the lives of others as we strive to find a cure against cancer. I'm very proud to have raised almost $12,500 in my previous 5 PTC rides, and I have reached Yellow Jersey status (fundraising minimum of $2,500) three years in a row. I've committed to raising at least $2,500 again this year to make it 4 years in a row as a Yellow Jersey! Let's all think big as we raise money for this great cause and work toward better health on this ride!

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.

Thanks for your support!
