Why I Participate:
I'm proud to join Padres Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. We have a large goal this year: to raise $3 million dollars at Padres Pedal 2018.
I have committed to the 5K Run/Walk on November 17th and to raise $5000.00 for cancer research. Please help donate any amount you can, its for a necessary cause that effects us all in some way. I really appreciate your help!!!
Cancer is the #1 cause of death in San Diego and #2 cause of death in the United States. 1 in 2 men & 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. For me, with a heavy heart I support my dear friend Saundra Pelletier who is fighting for her life with a very aggressive form of stage 3 lobular breast cancer.
SADLY THIS DISEASE EFFECTS US ALL & WE MUST COME TOGETHER TO HELP FIND A CURE!!
We all have a friend or family member fighting for their life or sadly have lost the battle as my beloved uncle Doug Morrison died with Pancreatic Cancer.
On a positive note, my husband Ed Altman is a survivor of AFX CANCER on his scalp. Every dollar raised through Padres Pedal goes to research in helping to find cures for all types of cancer.
Padres Pedal provides funding for the finest collaborative research teams at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, The Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute and Rady Children's Hospital San Diego.
I hope you will support me in this journey and consider making a donation, of any size. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to fund cancer research in San Diego.
