Why I Participate:
We all know someone who has been affected by cancer - for me, two years ago, days after Padres Pedal 2016 ride and a few days before his 78th birthday I lost my father to this devastating disease. Additionally, I have several family members and friends affected by cancer, including my mother-in-law who has battled ovarian cancer, and father-in-law prostate cancer. Three years ago my best friend died from lung cancer. I have another close friend who has suffered from skin cancer and I myself have had multiple areas of skin cancer.
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.
