Why I Participate:

I ride to honor the memory of my husband Chris who succumbed to lung cancer in April 2015. This will be my fourth year riding for Pedal the Cause since Chris has passed. I believe that this event has helped me cope with the deep sorrow and grief over the years. I don't think I will ever fully recover, but I definitely have a new prospective for life that I didn't have before.

I have committed to raise $1,250. and ride 100 miles for cancer research. However, MY GOAL THIS YEAR IS TO RAISE $5,000.00.

Please partner with me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to fund cancer research in San Diego.

Sadly, one of our team members Jean Compton recently lost her husband Mark (57) to Gastro-Esophageal cancer on April 24, 2018. My heart goes out to Jean as she grieves the loss of her best friend and soulmate. Jean has also committed to ride 100 miles to raise money for cancer research.

I know a number of people today who are battling cancer and are in the fight of their life. Their cancer battle gives me the motivation and determination to push myself beyond my comfort zone.

Padres Pedal has made a way for me to give back and make a positive impact by raising money and awareness for cancer research.
