WHY I RIDE

Cancer touches us in more ways than one. More of my relatives and friends who have fought cancer have lost their battles, not won them. Many are still fighting. Last year, cancer got personal. My wife was diagnosed with encapsulated papillary carcinoma (a form of breast cancer) two years ago. She won the battle, hopefully for good.

The hope that one day there will be a world without cancer is why I ride for Pedal the Cause. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through its annual cycling challenge. I've chosen to raise money through Pedal the Cause because every dollar you donate goes directly to fund cancer research. Pedal the Cause also has a proven record. For every $1 Pedal the Cause donates to fund cancer research, on the average an additional $7 is obtained in federal funding.

You are the reason why I have raised more than $12,000 in previous five years. I can't be more excited as I enter my 6th year of riding for Pedal the Cause. I am grateful for your partnership in our fight against cancer. Thank you for your support year after year!
