WHY I RIDE

Last year, I went way out of my comfort zone and did something I never thought I would have ever done, I rode 37 miles (with the previous most being 14 miles) on the most uncomfortable bike seat for an event called Pedal the Cause. Even though I wobbled away with a very sore butt, covered in sweat, and slightly sunburnt, I have never been so proud of myself. Pedal the Cause is a yearly bike riding event with the purpose of raising money to find a cure for cancer. The really cool thing about Pedal the Cause is that every penny donated is used to find a cure and nothing is wasted. However, it gets even better because my firm will generously match dollar for dollar every donation I receive and on top of that, every dollar brings in another $7 in funding. Meaning a $1 donation turns into $16, a $5 donation turns into $80, a $10 donation turns into $160 and so on.

With that being said, I am extremely proud (and slightly scared) to announce that I will be once again leaping out of my comfort zone and will ride 50 miles this September 30th. Cancer has affected all of our lives in one way or another. I am doing this for everyone who has been impacted by cancer, but I am especially riding in memory of my best friend, my Nana Frankie, and my Great Aunt Pat who my team, the MRHFM Meso Warriors, is riding in honor of this year. Pedal the Cause has actually funded immunotherapy treatment, which is the treatment my Aunt Pat is receiving at Siteman Center. This is proof that every dollar helps and makes a difference.

My goal is to help find a cure for 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 cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Thank you.
Charlie
