|$0 My Commitment: $1,250.00|
|Congrats! Keep going!|
I'm very excited to fundraise for and ride in my first Pelotonia! Seeing the amazing results this event and organization have achieved to support the life saving work going on at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute over the past 11 years has been so inspiring and it's about time we got involved!
And in our family we have felt the impact of that work very close to home. In late 2018 my mother-in-law, Jody, was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Mel & I were there when the doctors delivered the news and it was truly helpless feeling. But Jody is a strong and courageous woman and her doctors at The James quickly laid out a treatment plan while talking about the breakthrough work towards a cure that is being done--the mood changed quickly to 'this is how we'll beat this'! The results so far have been amazing and we feel very fortunate to have seen this treatment working so well, we know many who face this disease are not as lucky.
This experience comes just one year after Mel's dad was successfully treated at The James for prostate cancer and we're thrilled that he is in complete remission! Our admiration for the work being done at The James and Solove Research Institute has only continued to grow.
Inspired by our family's experience, this year, Pursuit also teamed up with Pelotonia to design some awesome accessories (ties, cufflinks, laces) to support the fundraising efforts. If you'd prefer to support that way--go buy some from the online Pelotonia store.
In just ten years the Pelotonia community raised over $184 million for cancer research. But we aren’t stopping there. Every single dollar we raise is invested in innovative cancer research, the brightest minds and ideas, and the tools and technology needed to reach our one goal. Please join me in supporting this cause and let’s save lives. Remember - 100% of every single dollar raised is directed to life-saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Your support matters. Join me. Together, we are unstoppable.
