WHY WE RIDE

In 2015 Team Leukemia formed to be an outreach to the leukemia research and treatment efforts at Siteman Cancer Center, Barnes Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine.

Team Leukemia is riding for all afflicted with blood cancers, pediatric and adult.

Team Leukemia lost our co-captain Bill Jehling to Acute Myelogenous Leukemia last fall. We ride for Bill, remembering his immovable smile despite his suffering through two bone marrow transplants during almost a decade of fighting.

So far Pedal the Cause support of Leukemia specific immunotherapy pilot projects has led to a 2.2 million dollar SPORE grant from the NIH for further research translation to useful therapy.
Siteman Leukemia SPORE

Team Leukemia is proud to have contributed enough to Siteman to have received both the Bronze and Silver Impact Awards for accumulated contributions over $250,000 as a team.

Pedal the Cause works for Leukemia research. It jump starts new ideas, and helps to prove these principles to go further. The 100% funding model insures that donations go directly where they should go, to research and not to administer the event.
