Why I Participate:

Hi, I am riding in the 6th Annual Padres Pedal the Cause-San Diego cycling fundraiser on November 17th. This will be our third year riding out of Petco Park and over the Coronado Bridge, which is an epic experience for all participants. I?m still a coastal weekend rider and the 55 miles will be a challenge. But as a 2-time cancer survivor, I am reminded every day of the many fathers, mothers, and family members that are currently fighting cancer, or live in fear of a relapse. That fear never goes away.

My wife Amy and I started Pedal the Cause in an effort to give back to the cancer community and to raise funds for cancer research here in our city. 100% of every dollar raised stays local and goes directly to funding world-class research between UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, Salk Institute, Sandford Burnham-Prebys and Rady Children?s Hospital. Progress will only come from sharing knowledge, expertise and resources across multiple institutions and PEDAL?s research grants bring together Discovery Teams of the best scientists in San Diego to work collaboratively to accelerate cures.
We have formed a community of riders, researchers, survivors and fundraisers with one goal: to a cure cancer in our lifetime so the next generation won?t have to face cancer in the way we have. Though government research cutbacks are a reality, there are exciting new advances and personalized medicines that are quickly evolving and the time is now to push ahead. With the proper resources, we have every reason to believe that we will win the fight.
I truly appreciate your support and have committed to raise a minimum of $40,000 for my ride in November. Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride.
