Why I Ride:
I am proud to join Padres Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. This November, I'm committing to ride both days and raise $5,000 for cancer research as one of thousands of riders with one shared goal: a world without cancer. I am honored to be a part of this vital effort to help defeat cancer. Last year, I raised $5,547 to contribute towards the total $2 million plus that was raised by Padres Pedal the Cause and donated toward collaborative cancer research by the organizations listed below. With your help, I hope to do it all over again and help PTC exceed their goal this year.
My sister is a cancer survivor. I also have several colleagues who are cancer survivors as well. As a Respiratory Therapist and the current President of the California Society for Respiratory Care, I have seen firsthand what the ravages of cancer can do to people's lives, their families, colleagues and friends. With the very important research work that has been done and the continuing research that will be supported by this year's Pedal the Cause I am able to say, my sister is a cancer survivor. With that being said, I continue to fund raise and ride for those who continue to fight for life every day.
It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. PEDAL is committed to realizing that vision. Please help me in this journey by making a donation, and give with confidence knowing that all proceeds go directly to accelerating cancer research at the Rady Children's Hospital, UCSD Moores Cancer Center, The Salk Institute and Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute. Each of these institutions are doing amazing work and are each helping with the kind of long term research that is needed to develop treatments and therapies that will one day be the ultimate cure(s) for cancer.
Thank you in advance for your kind and generous donation to this very worthy and important cause.
