Why We Participate:

Why we ride:
We are joining the fight against cancer by riding Padres Pedal the Cause18. We are a cycling crew of all abilities with long-distance riders to guys who think pedaling a beach cruiser to the coffee shop is a day's work. But we're all in it together and doing our part to raise money and awareness for cancer research here in San Diego.

Cancer is the #1 cause of death in San Diego. 1 in 2 men and women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. We aim to change those statistics and ultimately, find cures so our children and grandchildren don't have to face this relentless disease.

Padres Pedal the Cause is committed to providing discover funding for collaborative research among our four top-notch institutions: Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Sanford-Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute and Rady Children's Hospital. There are phenomenal advances in research and treatments coming every day and the next decade will be critical to the development of sophisticated, individualized cancer care. Now is the time to dig deep and make a difference.

On November 17th, our team will be out there riding, spinning & celebrating together as we reach our goal of raising $150,000+. We are riding this year in honor of Lota Ward, an 12 year old cancer survivor and thriver who had gone through countless surgeries and treatment for a brain tumor over the last four years. He is a true warrior and we are excited to have him as part of our team. We hope you will help us on this journey to find a cure by joining our team or making a donation to our efforts.

100% of your donation will go directly to cancer research and stay here in San Diego.

Thank you for the consideration and we will keep pedaling until we find a cure for this disease!
