Why I Participate:
Two years ago, a close friend's mother was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. Late last year, my aunt was diagnosed with ovarian cancer that had also spread to her liver. They are just a couple of the many people in my life that have been diagnosed with cancer. Cancer really sucks and affects too many. Another reality is that it impacts whole families, as they walk alongside their loved ones through treatment plans that last for extended periods of time. Many current forms of treatment are not very effective and are quite taxing, which is why I believe that there is still a great need for advancement and breakthrough in cancer research.
Padres Pedal the Cause donates 100% of every rider-raised dollar to support the collaborative research efforts between Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, and Rady Children's Hospital San Diego with a goal of raising $3 million dollars at Padres Pedal 2018.
I have committed to ride the Olympic Challenge (a 54-mile ride) on November 17th and raise $1,000 for cancer research. I thank you in advance for your support (any amount would be greatly appreciated!). Also, please check with your employers if they match donations (many do). 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to fund cancer research in San Diego.
Let's strive for a world without cancer! =) Thanks again for your time and support.
