Why I ride: I am proud to ride for Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause is more than a community cycling event, it's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer, all cancers, for everyone. Unfortunately, we all know someone or love someone who has been affected or has lost their battle with cancer.

2016 was the first year I rode in Pedal the Cause. I signed up to ride 20 miles in memory and in honor of loved ones and friends who have either lost their battle with cancer or are currently in the fight of their lives. Physically it was a tough ride for me; harder than I ever imagined. What kept me going was the thought of those who are currently battling their disease and how they have to endure way more than the struggles I experienced during my ride; NO comparison. I also kept thinking of the man who inspired me to keep riding, Dan Whelan. He has a rare form of testicular cancer, a Leydig cell tumor, and is terminal. He rode 75 miles in 2015 and was a spinner last year, all the while fighting his fight. He continues to ride his bike every day even on chemotherapy treatment days.

I plan to ride 20 miles stronger and harder at this year's Pedal the Cause in memory of LAHOMA GEBKEN, STAN REYNOLDS, DEBRA DAVIS, and in honor of RICK MILLER who is currently battling mucinous adenocarcinoma cancer (a rare type of appendix cancer), MARCIA WILLOUGHBY who is currently battling colon cancer, BECKY SPALDING who is currently battling breast cancer, DOUG HACKER who is a survivor of throat cancer, and for the millions of families who have been affected by cancer. I hope to raise $375 or more, but I need your help.

Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride. It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer, and Pedal the Cause is the only event that gives 100% of participant donations to Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital to advance cancer research. Together, we can create a world without cancer.

Thank you for your support.
