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.

This is my 3rd year riding in Pedal the Cause. The more I learn about the organization and the impact it has, the more I want to support it. I hope you'll join the fight again this year.

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.

I joined Pedal the Cause last year because it's a great way to give a purpose to my cycling and make a difference in this world. I have had a lot of family members and friends battle cancer. Some have been successful in their fight, but too many have lost their lives to cancer.

I'm biking this year in memory of the following people:
- My wife's grandfather went into remission for 7 years, but eventually lost the fight to multiple myeloma
- My grandmother lost her battle with bladder and kidney cancer
- A mother at my church lost her husband to cancer leaving her to raise their triplets alone.

Breast and prostate cancer are also no stranger to my family. Awareness helps, but ultimately we need to continue to research cancer and find new treatments. Will you join me in the fight against cancer?
