Why We ride: We ride because we are Powered by Hope. We are inspired by the vision that one day there will be a world without cancer. So join us, whether you ride with us in person, in the spinning tent or virtually, your support will go a long way. In fact, 100 percent of your contribution will go directly to support cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

This year Team Powered By Hope's 2017 Ride for a Child is Leo. He loves Star Wars, Super Heroes and playing outside when he is feeling well. He has 2 older sisters, Ella (11) and Mia (7), who along with his Mom, an infusion nurse at Siteman West County, are trying to keep life as normal as possible for him. Leo was diagnosed in January of 2017 with High Risk T-cell ALL. After finishing an intense chemotherapy regime at the end of January, he was so weak that he was unable to walk. Leo is currently doing physical therapy to regain his strength, and is on his second round of chemotherapy. His family says that he is a trooper and have lovingly dubbed him 'Leo the Lion'!

We welcome Leo and his family to the team, and look forward to riding in his honor this year! Of course we would never forget to ride for Allison, our petite princess; Peyton, our unstoppable bundle of energy; DJ, our kind and loving not-so-little boy; and Kaitlyn, our growing teenager!
