This year will mark my 10th year of participation in the Pedal the Cause bicycling challenge. OUR MISSION is to provide critical funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Childrens Hospital through the annual cycling challenge. It is our hope that research funded by Pedal the Cause will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

Founded in 2010 with the bold model of using 100% of public donations to fund world-class cancer research, Pedal the Cause has quickly become the gateway to curing cancer - all cancers, for everyone. In this period of diminished federal funding where support typically gets funneled to already proven concepts, many potential new ideas are not deemed eligible. Pedal the Cause donations seed best-in-breed ideas at our beneficiaries to allow the cultivation of proof of concept and critical data. These seeded projects often turn into groundbreaking results that lead to new treatments and cures, prevention, and early detection diagnostics. Additionally, donations from Pedal the Cause make a positive economic impact in the St. Louis community as stronger research funding will continue to support this high profile and critically important segment of the St. Louis economy. My hope is that research funded by Pedal the Cause will result in improved treatments and ultimately a cure. We can beat this devastating disease!

I dedicate my ride in loving memory of Victoria Drier, a young woman who boldly faced her cancer and vigorously fought her disease for twelve years before ultimately succumbing in December 2018. Victoria had grit and brought inspiration to everyone around her. She is greatly missed by all who love her.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure for cancer by making a donation to Pedal the Cause. I'm counting on your support! Thanks to the generosity of the event sponsors, 100% of your tax deductible donation will go to directly to funding cancer research. 100%

Thank you,
