Why I Ride:
Last year was such an amazing experience of participating in a worthy event to fight the fight that I decided to do it again. There is not a day that goes by that I am not reminded of how cancer impacts so many lives and families. I lost my dear mother to cancer in 2010. My father-in-law was diagnosed last week with prostate cancer. So many friends have battled and fought this disease as well. I think we all have a family member or friend that has been touched by cancer. That being said, I want to do something to help in the goal of finding a cure. I love to bike and welcome the opportunity to pedal for a cause!
It takes world-class research and treatment institutions working together to create a world without cancer. Padres Pedal is committed to realizing that vision. You can give with confidence knowing that 100% 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.
Thank you so very much for considering a donation to fight cancer. I am honored to pedal 88 miles for this cause!
