I am riding In Memory of Victoria Drier, Chris Davidson, Margret Schutte, Karen Igou, James Bennight.


Again this year I will ride for Team Victoria. I ride again representing The Moog Center for Deaf Education and the Moog Center family. I continue to dedicate my ride to those very special people from the Moog Center who have been affected by cancer. I ride in memory of Karen Igou, who was the first Toddler Class teacher at the Moog Center. Karen set the standard high for our Toddler Class teachers and she has been a hard act to follow. Karen was an incredible asset to the Moog Center and we miss her terribly. I ride in memory of Margaret Schutte, who was the assistant to my mother, Jean Moog, the Founding Director of the Moog Center. Margaret was my mother's right hand gal and although her memory is strong at the Moog Center, her absence is a great loss. I ride in memory of Chris Davidson. Chris was the husband of my dear friend, Anne, who is a teacher at the Moog Center. Chris lost a 5 year battle to brain cancer. His family founded the Christopher Davidson Endowed Forum for Brain Tumor Research to help support brain cancer research at Washington University. I will ride in memory of James Bennight, the husband of Rhonda who I have worked with for over 30 years and the father of Tabitha who has been part of the Moog Family since she was in high school when she volunteered. And, I ride in memory of Victoria. Victoria was the daughter of my cousin, Julie, and was the Lead Teacher in one of our Toddler Classrooms at the Moog Center. She was an amazing example of hope and perseverance. She was an amazing example of strength and overcoming obstacles. And, for years she benefited from research made possible by funding provided by Pedal the Cause. Victoria was an inspiration to all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Please make a contribution to support my ride and to support Pedal the Cause and Cancer Research. Victoria remains in our hearts and is missed Every. Single. Day.

I have set a personal fundraising goal of $2500. Please support my ride and help me reach my goal.

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