Hello! We hope you and your family are well during these uncertain times. When faced with extraordinary challenges, we must take extraordinary measures. These are difficult times, but cancer doesn’t stop even during a global pandemic. Scientists at The James continue to work hard to find a cure, and we have loved ones out there fighting their battles. If you are in a place with as little as $5.00 to spare, we request for your donations so we can all contribute to reaching One Goal: End Cancer. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
Together, we will get through this crisis faster, stronger, better.
Stay Safe and Be Legendary!
Pelotonia has been a part of my life since I was 16, even though I was halfway across the world (in the Philippines). My husband, Riley, was 15 when he rode his first 180-miles in 2009 for Pelotonia's first ride, and he's been riding 180-miles every year since.
My sister, Kace, beat thyroid cancer at 17, and my dad is currently battling prostate cancer; while Riley lost his sister, Eden, to neuroblastoma when she was only 8, so this cause means a lot to our family.
When I moved to Ohio, I was so excited to finally be a part of it - spreading awareness, promoting the fundraising, cheering at the finish line. In 2018, Riley's dad, Rourke, rode alongside Riley in memory of Eden. I decided to sign up as a volunteer so I can be more involved and, along with my husband and father-in-law, contribute to reaching One Goal: End Cancer.
Founded in 2008, Pelotonia was established with the objective to fund life-saving cancer research. Focused on a community of passionate fundraisers and centered around a three-day experience of cycling, entertainment, and volunteerism, the Pelotonia community has raised more than $157 million for high-risk, high-reward cancer research. Last year, 8,022 Riders from 39 states and 7 countries participated along with 3,576 Virtual Riders and 3,044 Volunteers. Please join me in supporting this cause, where 100% of your donation will go directly towards cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
Now more than ever the need for cancer research funding is vital. During this pandemic individuals are still being diagnosed with cancer. It’s up to us as a community to continue to fund ground-breaking research in order to not slow progress toward our One Goal.
100% of every dollar you donate is invested in innovative cancer research, the brightest minds and ideas, and the tools and technology needed to change the future of cancer care. In just twelve years, the Pelotonia community has raised more than $209 million, but we aren’t stopping there. Please consider supporting me today by making a donation. Together, we can be legendary.
