Why We Ride:

Why we ride:
We are joining the fight against cancer by riding Padres Pedal the Cause17. 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 1 in 3 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.

With that goal in mind, our team is riding in honor of a young man named Jace Barnett. Jace is 5 years old and battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) with courage and heart. He likes to play sports, eat tacos and loves superheroes. To us, he is the real superhero and we are psyched to ride under the finish line at Petco and celebrate with Jace.

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 11th & 12th, our team will be out there riding, spinning & celebrating together as we reach our goal of raising $150,000+. 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 this cause and stay here in San Diego.

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