Why I Participate:

For the fifth year in a row I have participated with GNF/Novartis, a team of dedicated scientists and colleagues, in the PADRES PEDAL THE CAUSE. The money we raise will fuel the research in the fight against cancer. This coming November 2019 I'm committing to ride 25 miles in San Diego plus ride the stationary bike for one hour and raise as much as I can to support cancer research.

Every day I am reminded of relatives and friends who have fought or still fight this disease. They fight with strength and courage. I am riding again for the Pedal the Cause for several reasons. First, the money I raise through your donation will have an impact in the fight against cancer through research provided at world class facilities. Secondly, my wife's good friend is still fighting cancer over the last few years. She has been a inspiration to my wife and myself. She is presently on some experimental drug therapy. In 2018, one of GNF co worker lost his battle with cancer. This coming November 2019 I'm committed to ride 25 miles and raise $600 for cancer research as one of the thousands of PEDAL riders

It takes world-class research and treatment institutions working together to create a world without cancer. PEDAL is committed to realizing that vision. Please help me in this special journey by making a donation. Give with confidence knowing that all proceeds go directly to accelerating groundbreaking collaborative research at 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.
