WHY I'M INSPIRED

I ride to make a difference. Most of us have experienced battles both won and loss in the fight against cancer. At times it has tested my beliefs as I'm sure most who read this. How can a good person be stricken with such a horrible disease? Knowing that Pedal donations are used in this fight only strengthens my commitment.

As many of you remember our friend and next door neighbor, Gene Sonnenschein, was battling cancer last year. He was stricken with a horrible brain cancer called Glioblastoma. He lost his battle with cancer in December of 2018. We all miss him terribly. The survival rate of Glioblastoma is very low. Many victims are stricken with stroke like symptoms as the first sign of a problem. Gene is an example of why the research Pedal the Cause funds is so important.

Our team (Cancer is Gross) has pledged to grow this year. Each member is trying to get another rider to join our team. If you would like to join the fight against cancer, Pedal the Cause is a great organization and our team welcomes any rider at any level. Remember 100% of donations go toward cancer research.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by donating, 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.
