Why I Participate:
Supporting cancer research is especially meaningful to me as my sister is a cancer survivor (yup, over 5 years) and mom had cancer but she ultimately lost the battle (though not without a tough fight). It takes world-class research and treatment institutions working together to create a world without cancer. Padres Pedal is committed to realizing that vision. Please help me in this special journey by making a donation today.
Last year I was honored to be a Yellow Jersey Fundraiser ($5,000) and attended the check presentation event which included two very inspiring speakers. The first speaker was a doctor at Rady Children?s Hospital who has been using grants from Padres Pedal to conduct research on children?s brain cancer, and he spoke of the progress and successes he?s had thus far. The second speaker spoke passionately and emotionally about his wife?s cancer treatment and remission that is only possible due to the cancer research being done here in San Diego, funded by Padres Pedal. It was an amazing start to the evening, leading up to the big reveal of $2,401,523 raised in the 2017 Padres Pedal.
Give with confidence knowing that 100% of donations 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.
