WHY I RIDE

I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in the 8th annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge and have personally committed to raising $2,500 to accelerate cancer research. 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 memory of my childhood friends that have lost parents to cancer including Amy Schriber and Lindsay Wayne who both lost their mothers in 2012; Mary Czarnecki who lost her mom on Thanksgiving 2011; 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, by riding yourself, or volunteering.

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 finding a cure. Ride. Donate. Volunteer
