I am riding In Honor of My family and friends fighting cancer.


I joined Pedal the Cause in 2017 after supporting Doug in his ride the year before. He had just recovered from his own cancer treatments and I wanted to take a more active role and join his team. Cancer has touched my life by affecting the people I love. Some have beaten this disease, others did not. My hope is that by doing my part to raise money with Pedal, I can be part of the cure.

Our team is Ride Big Black Dog after our sweet black lab, Rex. He was by Doug's side while he recovered from his treatments, providing love and support by just being there. We want our team to be that to those fighting cancer - we can be the love and support for them and their caregivers knowing that we are working to end cancer.

Through Pedal, we see the impact a few people have when they reach out to their own circles - we achieve great things together! The 2018 event raised $4.5 million toward cancer research. I marvel at the progress already being made through Pedal's fundraising, highlighted each year during the pre-ride events.

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. Join me and show your love and support for all those fighting cancer.
