Pedal the Cause

I'm riding: 40 miles

Team: Team Leukemia

ID: 81012

Lifetime total: $3,785.00

I am riding In Memory of Dad Fred and Sis Carol.

I am riding In Honor of Kathy.


I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause is more than the region's top cycling event. It's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer.

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.

Cancer affects everyone and has taken my dad, Fred, and my sister, Carol, both at a young age and both to lymphoma. Many others have suffered or will suffer, so research is vital in fighting this disease.

In 2018 cancer hit our home as my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and received treatment. She's doing pretty well and we are confident of a good outcome. Again, research and good care gives us a huge advantage in fighting this. We are grateful for all the patients and research that have gone before us and the skill and care we have received.

Please help if you feel led to do so.

My fundraising goal is $375 (by October 31st) and I am riding 40 miles on September 27th. I'm looking forward to the ride and supporting cancer research!

Thank you very much!

Steve Karigan
