Why I Participate:
I recently joined Thermo Fisher Scientific ... a company which is BIG on improving the human condition through systems, consumables, and services for researchers.
Over the past few years, Thermo Fisher Scientific has proudly participated in Padres Pedal the Cause https://www.gopedal.org/, an organization committed to accelerating cancer cures. Ending this horrible disease is just one of the reasons why we work so hard each day to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer, and Padres Pedal the Cause is another chance for us to contribute to a cure. Since 2013, the organization has raised over $10 million, funding 48 research projects and five clinical trials for pancreatic, breast, brain, pediatric, skin, lung, colorectal, gastrointestinal, ovarian and endometrial cancers.
I am excited to help raise funds for this cause. I have committed to the 5K Run/Walk on November 16th and to raise $250 for cancer research.
Padres Pedal provides funding for the finest collaborative research teams at 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.
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.
