Why I Participate:
For the 6th year, I am happy to have joined Padres Pedal the Cause as part of my corporate team, BD, in this important fight to end cancer. This November 17, I'm committing to ride 100 miles and raise $1000 for cancer research as one of thousands of PEDAL riders with one shared goal: A World Without Cancer!
This year, through the Ride for a Child program, BD will ride in honor of Caden - an 11 year-old survivor of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
I am riding for my father, Bob Megraw, who died of a rare blood disease known as amyloidosis. I also ride for my mother and grandmother, both cancer survivors, who suffered ovarian and breast cancer (including a mastectomy), respectively.
Overhead costs are covered by corporate sponsors, including BD, so 100% of your donation will be allocated towards cancer research through these four world-class facilities here in San Diego: Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.
Please help me in this journey to end cancer by donating to my ride. Let me emphasize again that 100% of all proceeds STAY in San Diego and it all goes directly to cancer research.
I would appreciate any contribution you're able to offer to help fund research efforts. Please click the link below:
