WHY WE RIDE

Team Bud was formed in memory of my wonderful Dad, Walter Bud Asbury, who died of bladder cancer at the end of 2011. We miss him terribly and wanted to do something that could potentially help others with this ugly disease. My dad was a giver, a man who served others his entire life, and we thought this was a good way to pay tribute to him. This is our sixth year with Pedal the Cause and have raised over $78,000 so far. It's been a great ride!!

In April of 2016, we lost our mom and renamed our team, Team Bud and Barb. Bud and Barb were truly a team who loved life, their family and their many friends. To honor them in this way is the least we can do to show how much they mean to us and what an impact they had and continue to have in our lives.

Each year we've increased the number of riders and volunteers on our team. Last year was our biggest year yet with 21 riders and 11 volunteers. We hit the lifetime $100,000 mark with a record fundraising year of $27,383 and hope to far exceed that in 2019. We continue to sponsor our own refueling station manned by friends and family and run by the amazing duo of Harry and Debby Wells. Harry has decided to ride in 2019 so we will have to recruit an equally strong and hardworking helper for Debby.

We joined the fight against cancer by participating in Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.
