Lifetime total: $30,495.00


I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in our annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause's mission is to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by the event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

I'm again joining my friend, Teri Griege, on her Powered by Hope Team. Teri found out in September of 2009 that she had stage 4 colon cancer that had metastasized to her liver. She had radiation, surgery and chemotherapy treatments. Teri and I met through cycling and continue to ride our bikes together. She's an inspiration to everyone she meets. You may have seen her on Channel 5 as they highlighted her fight and her story as she competed as a featured athlete at the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, October 2011. Or, you may see her picture around town on various billboards for the Siteman Cancer Center, or on the Ellen Degeneres Show or with KathyLee and Hoda or heard her Ted get the point, she gets around in her fight against cancer. She continues to train, compete and continue her constant fight against cancer. Check out her book Powered By Hope to hear her story first hand. We're celebrating Teri's 12-year Cancerversary this year! It's quite an honor to be her friend.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have committed to raise $$$$$ for cancer research and 100% of your donation will go to directly to this cause.

I plan to ride The Hamburg Hammer, 32 miles, on Saturday, September 25 and The Big Hitter, 48 miles, on Sunday, September 26 with Teri and Powered By Hope. I hope you will join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure. Let me know if you have someone special that I should include as My Honored Hero!
