WHY WE RIDE

Please join our St. Louis Children's Hospital team led by our captains: President Trish Lollo, Pediatrician in Chief Dr. Gary Silverman and Division Chief, Pediatrics Hematology Oncology, Dr. Jorge Di Paola. We hope you will join us as a rider, stationary cyclist or virtual rider!

This year, St. Louis Children's Hospital rides in honor of 2-year-old Eleanor, who recently completed treatment for acute myeloid leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Born with Down syndrome and a blood disorder known as transient myleoproliferative disorder (TMD), doctors have monitored her closely since birth because kids with TMD have a 10-20% chance of developing leukemia. After a series of routine tests came back abnormal, Eleanor was diagnosed with leukemia at 15 months old.

View Eleanor's story and learn from her physician and Pedal researcher, Dr. Jeff Magee, and team captain, Dr. Jorge Di Paola.


Eleanor rang the bell in June 2021, signifying the end of her cancer treatment and is enjoying every minute being home. She loves playing with her siblings and spending time outside and was able to get her central line removed, which her mom says is a huge deal. Eleanor also is taking about 10 steps unassisted and should be walking by herself in no time.

Eleanor and her parents are excited to be representing St. Louis Children's at Pedal the Cause this year and hope that you will join our team in the fight against cancer!
