Why I Participate:
1. the impact cancer has had on me and people I love dearly
2. the facts: Cancer is the #1 cause of death in San Diego and California
3. the impact Padres Pedal the Cause has every year -- saving lives -- supporting the most important goal: to find the cure
4. the direct effect of Padres Pedal the Cause on San Diego's Bio-tech, Life Science and Innovation cluster. As a Board Member of the San Diego Regional Development Corporation and the Downtown San Diego Partnership, I'm humbled by what a truly Life.Changing. initiative this is -- going far beyond 'just another fundraiser' and creating a movement within San Diego to create a more sustainable framework for SD sourced funding for life science and cancer research
Please rally and support this cause! There are several ways to join the effort -- either by joining a team, forming a team, volunteering or donating.
Last year was a very impressive experience for my family. My husband, James, and children, Cole and Beau, joined the effort. Cole and Beau rode with brave children batting cancer, their family members and friends.
Often, I hear people say, I'll join next year. Please don't wait to get involved. In just one year, I've had a dear friend fight and succeed, and another fight and lose the battle, leaving two beautiful young daughters and a loving husband.
Time slips away - the time is now - join the cause - make a difference - participate!
