WHY I RIDE

This is my 5th 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. 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. COVID-19 is a mess, but there are vaccines to help fight COVID-19. However, there is no vaccine for cancer and it continues to attack those we love. Will you stand with me against 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.

Pedal the Cause last is 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.

Each year I bike 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

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. Please consider joining me in the fight as I pedal the cause. My goal this year is $2,500.
