WHY I RIDE

I am joining the #pedalfamily in the fight against cancer for my 11th Pedal the Cause fundraiser. Pedal the Cause Inspired certainly looks different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but cancer has not taken a break. Our efforts to raise critical funds are needed now, more than ever! I am proud to be a part of this #pedalfamily that is unwavering in our efforts to create A WORLD WITHOUT CANCER. NO PANDEMIC can stop this family in our efforts to end cancer, all cancers for everyone.

So what does my Pedal the Cause look like this year ------- I will be Spinning in the Virtual PTC Spin Session from my home in Plymouth, MA on Powered by Hope this year. #pedalfamilynomatterwhere

The best part is that we can all do our part, with our CANCER CURING BIKES, to help create a world without cancer!

This ride gets more personal with the passing of every day, as too many lives are lost or changed forever by this ugly disease. It is time to eradicate cancer, now and forever. I GIVE 100% in honor of so many that show up every day to face their cancer journey. This year, in particular I am dedicating my ride to my cousin Kayla who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I will also ride in memory of so so many, including many, many #pedalfamily members that I had the privilege to spend time with, as well as close family and friends who have experienced the devastating loss of their parents - Amy Schriber, Lindsay Wayne and Mary Czarnecki; my childhood friend and in-law, Darin Hartley who lost his battle with leukemia nearly a decade ago, King Nate, our ride for a child kiddo who lost his battle just weeks before his 8th birthday, and Clare Blase - a 14 year spirited young lady that touched my heart in ways she will never know before losing her battle in December 2012. I ride for those who cannot, for the caregivers who are grieving the loss of a loved one, for the researchers who are working diligently to find cures, and for my daughter Gwendolyn whom I hope will never heard the words from her family or friends - I have cancer.

Together, we are making a difference. The Pedal the Cause family is changing the trajectory of cancer research through our fundraising efforts. We are on the brink of finding cures, and I invite you to join me on the road to a world without cancer by donating to support my ride today! Fundraising closes October 31, and 100% goes to fund critical cancer research in an effort to end cancer, all cancers for everyone.

To hear the impact of your donations form the words of the researcher, caregiver and patient themselves, check out their incredible story http://stlouis.pedalthecause.org/featured_fighters.jsp and to see your money at work visit http://stlouis.pedalthecause.org/beneficiaries_research.jsp

One in two men; one in three women will be impacted by cancer in our lifetime. Let's change this statistics....

Join me on the road to creating a world without cancer!

With gratitude,
Carrie
