Why I Participate:
As a former cancer researcher, I have some understanding of the extraordinary effort and cost of performing basic laboratory or clinical cancer research. Progress is based on the slow, laborious, accumulation of data, that takes time, commitment and money. However, as a cancer patient I've come to appreciate the value of this effort. The advancements in prevention, detection and treatment have been tremendous. I'm grateful that my cancer was caught early and my outlook is positive. However, many people are not so lucky, and there is still an awfully long way to go before we can look at cancer as anything other than a life threatening disease, that sadly often has a devastating impact on our lives.
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.
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.
