Why I Participate:
This year our team is riding for 4 year old Ryker Freistat - Davis. On August 9, 2017 Ryker became of the 250 children in the U.S. diagnosed with T- All (T - Cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia.) Ryker is an only child to young parents who care for him full time while also attending college. Currently Ryker's parents are both college students with no income already facing intimidating hospital bills. They are reliant on family, friends, and the community to get through this tough time.
Because of Ryker's compromised immune system and long hospital stays he hasn't been able to do many of the things he enjoys like swimming and playing with his dog - Ma (his best friend) for quite awhile. The treatment plan will be a total of 3.5 years with a 5 year goal to cure.
Padres Pedal the Cause provides funding for the finest collaborative research teams at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, The Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute and Rady Children's Hospital San Diego. It is the goal that research funded by Padres Pedal the Cause will lead to increased survivorship and ultimately, a cure.
Please help me in my effort to raise money for Padres Pedal the Cause by making a donation. 100% of Every dollar raised goes directly to fund life-saving cancer research to help treat young fighters like Ryker.
