WHY WE RIDE

We are proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer.

Supporting the health and longevity of our communities is at the heart of RGA's mission and we're proud to sponsor Pedal the Cause, an annual St. Louis cycling event that helps raise funds for cancer research. Join Team RGA Changing Gears and help bringing awareness to the groundbreaking research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital. Our goal is to recruit 50 riders and raise $50,000 for Pedal the Cause in 2023 celebrating RGA's 50th Anniversary!

During RGA's team kickoff we learned of the work of Dr. Jeff Bednarski, MD, PHD. In 10 short years the work lead by Dr. Bednarski has gone from an idea to clinical trials in humans. This is an amazing pace and he was able to do this because Pedal believed in his research. He is using NK cells our bodies make and injects them into patients and these cells reproduce and start attacking the bad cells. Even better, there are no side effects. He told a story of a little girl who had relapsed several times after other treatments and was beaten down mentally and physically by the effects of treatment. After she received treatment from Dr. Bednarski she was bouncing off the walls again and her parents were overjoyed to "have their daughter back again".

I wish I could give his work justice, but I'm more of a numbers persons. So, I'll give the story in numbers. RGA has raised almost $200k because of YOU! Please continue to support this years cause furthering the progress to a cure for cancer. Join us by registering for our team or making a donation today.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
