Why I Participate:
We all know someone who lights up very room. For me, that person is my friend Nancy. We were together in Napa Valley last December with a group of girlfriends celebrating friendship. One month later, January 2018, Nancy was diagnosed with cancer and has since undergone surgery, intensive chemo, and now radiation. This disease is so hard on the patient as well as their entire family. Fortunately, her prognosis is very good!
While the battle against cancer is improving, I have more friends battling this disease for the first time again this year. Through my involvement with Pedal, I have had the chance to get to know some of the leading edge cancer doctors in the United States and they are confident we are close to finding a cure for several types of cancer very soon. This ride is for my many friends and family members who are either currently going through chemo/radiation or thankfully in remission now.
Padres Pedal is committed to creating a world without cancer. To date, it has raised over $7 million to fund lifesaving research with 42 studies being funded. Bill Koman (the founder & 2 time cancer survivor) has a goal to exceed last year's total of $2.4 million and raise $3,000,000 this year. Please help me in this journey by making a donation, and give with confidence knowing that all proceeds go directly to accelerating cancer research at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.
Last year, you helped me raise over $20,000 for this incredible cause. I am determined to increase it again this year! When you click on the donate button above, you will find a simple and secure way to make any size donation you wish. Any amount is truly appreciated! EVERY DOLLAR DONATED IS USED 100% FOR RESEARCH!
In advance, thank you for considering a donation to my ride in support of our efforts to end cancer. Together, we WILL find a cure!
My sincerest thanks,
