2020 will be my sixth Pedal The Cause weekend. It is one of my favorite weekends of the year. This year I will be spinning for an hour on Sunday. Join me!

In March 2015 I was a 4th Grader at Ascension Catholic School studying, playing soccer, preparing my State Fair project when BOOM!!! I became very sick. On April 17, after much testing, I was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) and spent almost four weeks as an inpatient at St. Louis Childrens Hospital. This was just the beginning of a very long (over TWO YEARS of nightly chemo, spinal taps and infusions) treatment plan but I know it will help make me healthy.

The POWERED BY HOPE Team chose me to be their 2015 Ride For A Child Children's Hospital kid and I am now on the POWERED BY HOPE team forever. I really love all the people who took care of me during my 4-week inpatient treatment and want to help raise money that will go to Children's Hospital's cancer research piggy bank.

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. Join our #PedalFamily as we continue to fight for a #WorldWithoutCancer.
