WHY I RIDE

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. I did two years in a row and wasn't able to join the WWT team last year and I regretted it! This year I'm doing 37 miles and will bump up to 50 if I can raise $5000 in donations!

100% of donations are directly provided to LOCAL cancer research. That is really amazing when you consider the operational costs of events and an organization like this, but with PTC, all operational costs have been funded from elsewhere. Please help me blow this goal away 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.

In 2016 my family lost our patriarch, my wife's grandfather Papa to Stage 4 lung cancer. My first PTC ride was in his honor and he will continue to be a part of it every year.

Late in 2016, one of the most inspirational men I've known in my adult life was diagnosed with and began battling through treatments for Glioblastoma. Mark Freddy Frederickson has progressed through very tough times and with a close family and strong faith continues to be positive and successful through his treatment.

This past year (while I was being lazy), my father-in-law, has been fighting colorectal cancer and successfully completing his chemo therapy in early 2019. Mike pushed through it and although I saw the toll it took on him, I can't begin to understand the stress, strain, and overall disruption to his and Cheryl's life.

This year, in addition to your financial support, I will motivate 2 people to join the cause to ride with us! Multiplication (vs addition) is the best way to grow any team. I'm not wasting any time and neither should you! Are you ready to ride?

Thanks,
Dave
