WHY I RIDE

I am riding in Pedal the Cause for the fifth year. I am 72 years old and have had cancer twice in my life--once when I was 2 almost 3 years old and again almost 8 years ago. I ride always for all of the children who, as you read this now, are fighting for their lives against this terrible disease and in memory of two of my cousins.
Three years I rode with a heavy heart. I rode for a dear friend, Cliff Hungerford, who was a devoted rider in Pedal the Cause and a huge supporter. Cliff was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident three springs ago. I rode to honor his commitment to creating a world without cancer and to honor the memory of a kind and good man.
This year I'm riding for Jon Lane, a family member fighting cancer. I think about him and his wonderful family every day and, for him and everyone fighting, I am powered by hope.

Please consider donating, not for me, but so we can make this a world without cancer for everyone. Remember that 100% of your donation goes for research to fight 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.
