Columbus to Gambier
My Fundraising Progress:
$0 My Commitment: $2,000.00
   Congrats! Keep going!

Ever since Pelotonia was founded in 2008, friends have always asked if I was going to ride Pelotonia. And I felt that other diseases had affected our family more and I would focus on those areas. Pelotonia is a one or two-day bicycling fundraising held in August in Columbus. Pelotonia was established with the objective to fund life-saving cancer research here in Columbus at the James Cancer Hospital and the Richard J Solove Research Institute.


But the last few years unfortunately things have really changed that perspective. My father-in-law passed in 2015 from prostate cancer. In 2017, my oldest brother was diagnosed with prostate cancer and is undergoing treatment in Dallas. In March 2018, my brother-in-law passed from colon cancer. My sister was diagnosed in 2018 with colon cancer and passed in February 2019. My brother was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer February 2019 as well and is undergoing treatment in Houston.



So this year I am riding Pelotonia with over 7200 of my new riding friends to support cancer research toward a cancer-free world. I will be riding the 100 mile route on August 3. I am asking you to support me in this effort with a donation toward my ride. 100% of the every dollar raised goes to cancer research.  Join me in this effort.  We can do this.


Thanks for your support.
