Why I Participate:

For the fifth year in a row, I'm participating in Pedal the Cause. Why? Because cancer still exist.

Since doing this ride last year, more of my family and friends have gotten cancer. So far they've been able to beat it, thank God.

Cancer is a murderer.

It killed my beloved mother, Marcy Golden, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2013 and died less than a year later. It killed my father-in-law, David Barr, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer--and died--just a few months after I married his son. It pains me to think of the people I have lost---and the people that my friends have lost. Too many of my friends have also lost friends and family to this disease.

I also have several friends who have battled cancer and won! They are survivors, and are heroes. But it saddens me that they even had to fight this battle in the first place.


This unique fundraiser keeps 100% of it's profits in San Diego for cancer research. Last year alone Pedal raised 1.3 MILLION dollars. The beneficiaries are UC San Diego Health, the Salk Institute, Rady Children's Hospital, and Sanford Burnham Presbys. All of the cancer research is collaborative and focuses on new treatments and prevention for many types of cancer.

I hope you consider donating. Every dollar counts!

Thank you so much!
