WHY I RIDE

10 Years! We have been riding our bikes and raising funds for cancer research for 10 years. The good news is that we have made amazing progress -- funding 130 novel, innovative research projects that have moved the frontier forward. New treatments, cures and diagnostics have been developed and are treating cancer patients. The bad news is that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will still be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. Simply put, we have more work to do. So, we'll keep riding our bikes and fundraising towards our goal of A world without Cancer.

I will always ride for my Mom who passed away after a 5 year battle with uterine cancer in June of 2010, and for my Dad who lost his battle with lung cancer in January, 2013. Both of them had a lot more life to live as a parent, grandparent, and friend.

This year, I will also ride for some Pedal the Cause warriors who no longer can ride: Victoria Drier, Julie Schroeder and Dave Hopper. They fought their cancer with grace and strength, and will be missed at PTC this year. Please consider donating to my ride in their honor and for all who continue to fight cancer. Let's keep pushing the frontier forward.

And, thanks to our sponsors who offset all expenses, 100% of your donations will go directly to fund cancer research. Thank you for your donations.

See you on the roads,
Jay.
