Why We ride: This year, St. Louis Children's Hospital rides in honor of Liam Goble who is receiving treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at St. Louis Children's Hospital.
Please read his inspiring story below and join our team, make a donation or volunteer to help out!

Meet Liam:
Coughing and looking increasingly pale, 2-year-old Liam was beginning to worry his parents Shannon and Charlie Goble of Cottage Hills, Ill.

"I'll never forget. It was Super Bowl Sunday of 2016 when I decided to take him to an urgent care clinic, expecting to be home by game time with an antibiotic," Shannon says.
But Liam's tender, swollen belly quickly changed those plans. Liam was sped off by ambulance across the river to St. Louis Children's Hospital, where his treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) kicked off with a 28-day hospital stay.

The family has been back and forth for maintenance treatment, scans and procedures -- including lumbar punctures that Liam handles bravely -- ever since. But that hasn't stopped Liam from doing everything he's always enjoyed, chief among them, riding his police motorcycle around the neighborhood. Also on Liam's favorites list is anything having to do with Blaze and the Monster Machines, mixing it up with a little Paw Patrol every now and then.

And, boy, does Liam have some big plans. "When I'm bigger, I want to drive a car with sirens on the front and sirens on the back," he says. "I'll arrest bad guys and put them in the back of my van, lock the doors and jump right in. Bam!"

Liam, who has been enlisted as the child ambassador for the St. Louis Children's Hospital Pedal the Cause team, doesn't have to give up on these dreams, thanks to decades of research that have improved the prognosis for kids his age diagnosed with ALL. Money raised through Pedal the Cause goes directly into cancer research conducted at Children's Hospital and Siteman Cancer Center.
