I am riding In Memory of Jason R. Hill.


Anyone who has ever witnessed the discomfort, challenges, and physical havoc people live with during cancer treatments knows we must continue to find more comfortable and humane options. My brother-in-law, Jason, experienced cancer and its treatments for 5 years until losing his life to the disease. He was always positive and endured treatments better than doctors, nurses, and family could have imagined. His physical, emotional, and spiritual resolve have been inspiring to so many, including myself. Regardless, that doesn't change the fact that Jason, and millions of other people, deserve a better experience while living with this disease. That's why I urge you to donate to the betterment of peoples' lives... better lives through research and improved treatments.

Jason rode for Pedal the Cause during his last 4 years, usually while engaged in treatments. How he did it, I don't know, but that was his physical and mental commitment to doing something about cancer. He also was committed (and succeeded) to raise thousands of dollars for cancer research. This was part of Jason's life long commitment to help other people, and to do his best during the most difficult of times.

This is my 6th PTC event where I will ride again with my wife, Jennifer, and Jason's Brain Trust fundraising/pedaling team. Please consider advancing cancer research and treatment by contributing to my ride. 100% of your donation will go directly to the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis where Jason's family lives. Jason was happy with his care there, and was passionately involved with this fundraising event and its mission. I would like to help see his passion for this cause live on. Please consider a donation this year. Thank you, Dave.
