Why I Participate:

On November 17th, I will be participating in Padres Pedal the Cause for the 6th year in a row!

I am incredibly proud to have joined Padres Pedal the Cause in this important fight to end cancer. My team alone - Bill's Angels - has raised over $1 million. We started out with 25 women and last year we were over 150 Angels strong! It's wonderful to see what can be accomplished when we come together. Unfortunately, this year, I will not be participating from the saddle (aka bike seat), but instead, I will be standing at the finish line cheering on hundreds of riders as they re-enter Petco Park.

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.

For the 4th year, Bill's Angels is also honored to be part of the Ride for a Child program which pairs teams with pediatric oncology patients from Rady Children's Hospital. Our youngest Angels, Angelina and Sol, are filled with such amazing spirit and courage. Their stories touch my heart beyond words!

Please take a look at who all these special children are: Ride for a Child
No child should ever have to experience any of this!

We owe it to all of those around us and our future generations to do something that brings us closer to eradicating this devastating disease. PLEASE help me achieve my personal goal of raising $5,000 to give to fight this battle. ALL PROCEEDS GO DIRECTLY TO ACCELERATING CANCER RESEARCH. No donation is too small. I have no doubt, this will be another unforgettable experience, connecting with hundreds of others who have one shared goal: A WORLD WITHOUT CANCER!

When you click on the donate link above, you will find a simple and secure way to make any size donation you wish. Please think of this as a donation not to me, but directly to cancer research.

In love and friendship!
