Why I Participate:
Most of my personal experience is with breast cancer. It has affected several family members - my mom, my sister, two cousins and my mother-in law, as well as several friends. It is a bullet I wish to dodge!
San Diego is one of the country?s hubs for cancer research. Padres Pedal the Cure funds cancer research ? life changing research. In the past five years, it has donated more than $7.1 million to fund cancer research projects for all types of cancers, including pancreatic, breast, brain, pediatric, skin, lung, colorectal, gastrointestinal, ovarian, and endometrial. It takes world-class research and treatment institutions working together to create a world without cancer. Padres Pedal is committed to realizing that vision.
I am proud to have joined Padres Pedal the Cause team. This November, I'm committing to ride and raise $1000 for cancer research as one of thousands of Padres Pedal riders with one shared goal: A World Without Cancer!
Thanks to the dedication and generosity of its sponsors, 100% of all operational and event costs are underwritten, allowing every dollar raised to fund life-saving cancer research. YOUR DOLLARS MATTER. 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.
