Hi, my name is Kira Schroeder. I am 11 years old and I am participating in Pedal the Cause. It is a fundraiser for cancer research where people ride to save lives. I ride in Pedal the Cause because I enjoy riding my bike for fun, and I don't win or lose because I can go at my pace and ride as much as I want. My mom is a part of a clinical trial for pancreatic cancer. I am glad that she is doing well, but it is important to help everyone.

On Sept. 30, I will ride in the Ameren Kids Challenge and see how many laps I can go around course. The first year, I did 22 laps, 11 miles! And I was only 7! My second year, I rode 20 laps, which is 10 miles, because the course was harder. I wonder what the course will be like this year.

My goal this year is to raise $2500 again in order to be a Yellow Jersey contributor and go to the Yellow Jersey Celebration! I would appreciate if you supported my ride. Just the smallest amount can make a difference. Remember, all donations go to reaearch for cancer.

Thanks to Pedal the Cause, lots of money has been donated straight to research to heal all kinds of cancer.
Pedal the Cause donated some money to trials that helped my mom. She is a survivor and all of our family is so happy that she is surviving.

The one large dream in Pedal the Cause is a world without cancer!

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer.
Please help me by donating to my ride, and give knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
