Why We ride: Bartlett's Bikers are back for 2016 Pedal the Cause with a goal of raising $85,000 as a team, bringing our "lifetime" team fundraising for PTC to $400,000. Our team members are patients, survivors, doctors, nurses, friends, family, and most importantly Lenore Upwood, our Ride for a Child participant.
We are all riding with one goal in mind - to raise money to support cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital in the hope that this work will lead to a better understanding of cancer and ultimately to better treatments.
We are delighted to be riding and fundraising again this year in honor of Lenore, a beautiful, spunky, smart, hilarious 7 year old. Lenore was diagnosed with Spinal Astrocytoma in January of 2013. While her surgery was successful in removing most of the tumor,the resulting damage in her spine left her paralyzed from the chest down. We first met Lenore as part of 2015 PTC and she stole our hearts. She loves reading, Legos, Disney World, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. Lenore and her amazing parents Karin and John are supported by many family members and friends. Lenore hosted the most successful individual fundraiser for PTC last year - a Star Wars party that netted more tnan $2000. Lenore earned her Yellow Jersey last year, raising more than $2500 WHILE fighting cancer. She set the bar for our team and we are so honored that Lenore has agreed to join Bartlett's Bikers again this year.
Please join our team this year to help stamp out cancer. We ride for cures, treatments, and hope.100% of the funds raised go towards research at St. Louis Children's Hospital and at Siteman Cancer Center.
