Why I Participate:
Personally, I am a breast cancer survivor who was diagnosed with Stage 2A breast cancer in October 2015. After 6 months of chemotherapy and seven surgeries, I am in remission and living life to my fullest. I will also be riding for my mother, Julie Layton, who is also a breast cancer survivor. Unfortunately, she had her second battle with breast cancer during the same time as my diagnosis; it became the mother-daughter breast cancer battle and we survived together!
I have donated to and walked hundreds of miles for organizations that support only breast cancer. Over the last 5 years, I have had close family members and friends inflicted with cancer (all types). I have decided to focus my fundraising efforts on curing all types of cancers. What is special about Padres Pedal the Cause is that 100% of funding goes directly to cancer research. They have raised over $4.75 Million over 4 years, and the number of riders, donations, and research collaborators continues to grow.
If we can all give a little to fight this horrific disease, huge strides will continue to be made to eliminate the spread of cancer and to help find a cure.
Thank you for your support - any amount helps!
