Why We Participate:

We are the scientists, staff and supporters of Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, and we are thrilled to take part in the seventh annual Padres Pedal the Cause. Some of our very own will be attempting a feat of endurance and stamina to cycle, run or walk for cancer research. It's a metaphorical act for a very real cause, and we need your help.

This event celebrates the fighting spirit of current and past cancer patients and enables better treatments by promoting world-class science here in San Diego. Life is short, and we must celebrate the health and vitality that we have, and do all that we can to support and honor those who have paused along the road. Toward this end, we are training our minds and bodies to go the distance and promote the wellness that is within our control. At the same time, we are raising real support for the science needed for life-saving cancer therapies.

We ask you to help us in our journey. The tireless scientists need your support, and if you're motivated to grab a bike, put on some running shoes or volunteer for the event, you're welcome to join us as well. We'd be honored to have you on the team!
