Why I Participate:

During an internship at the Salk Institute, I shared lab space with many scientists who were actively working to find treatments for some of the most dangerous cancers such as glioblastoma (type of brain cancer). I have seen the hard work and dedication these researchers have towards putting an end to a disease that touches many of our lives in one way or another during our lifetime. Almost all of us know someone or have a family member affected by cancer, and I believe one day science can help us understand enough about our cells and genes to confidently treat cancer when it arises, or even prevent it altogether.

I'm proud to join Padres Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. We have a large goal this year: to raise $3 million dollars at Padres Pedal 2018.

Personally, I have committed to ride 25 miles in the Coronado Classic on November 17th and raise $350 for cancer research. I hope you will support me in this journey and consider making a donation, of any size. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to fund cancer research in San Diego.

This year, we are riding for 8-year-old Gideon. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in 2015. Since then, Gideon and his family have been bravely battling this terrible disease. Thermo Fisher is proud to have Gideon as an honorary team member again this year!
