WHY I RIDE

1. Cancer affects everyone. Recently, I lost a great aunt to pancreatic Cancer. In 2016, a best friend from high school had a double mastectomy and is in remission from breast cancer. In 2003, my grandfather died from lung cancer. My uncle has lymphoma.

2. The funded research is leading to massive advancement in the elimination of cancer. People are beating this disease. Information on funded projects can be found on this site.

3. In 2015, I had the honor of meeting the founders of Pedal the Cause at a Yellow Jersey Celebration. Teri Griege, a cancer survivor, told her story of training and competing in The Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii while undergoing chemotherapy (http://terigriege.com/about-teri/). Oncologists from Washington University spoke about the latest developments in cancer research. I left this event with a renewed appreciation for life and health, and I also decided to get on board with Pedal The Cause.

4. I am fortunate enough to have a bike and legs that can ride the hills of St. Louis for 100 miles. Additionally, I'm surrounded by super generous people like YOU who will spare a few dollars to make a difference in the world.

Thank you for visiting my donation page and Pedal The Cause page.

********** (This is the part they wrote)*********
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.

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.
