|Congrats! Keep going!|
Dear Friends, Family and Co-workers;
I’m very fortunate to again be able to ride the Peletoina to help raise money for Cancer Research this year! 100% of all funds go to the James Hospital right here in Columbus.
My goal of raising $1500 is to honor my sister Cheryl who passed away two years ago and to acknowlege cancer survivors: Bill my Husband, Melissa Wulliger a dear friend and many more friends, family and co-workers.
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 $184 million. Thanks to its generous funding partners, Pelotonia can direct 100% of every donation to cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
Pelotonia is an extraordinary experience for everyone who participates, but it's so much more than just an event. The Pelotonia community is all about people coming together and making great things happen. It is about hope for those battling cancer and about making tangible progress toward eradicating this disease for future generations. Together, we are making meaningful impact. Last year hosted 25,000 Unique Riders , virtural riders, and volunteers from 50 states and 21 countries while the event raised more than 1 million donations from all 50 states and 70 countires. This community of participants and donors have funded 440 Student Fellowships, 87 Senior Scientists, 108 Idea Grants, and 3 Statewide Initiatives. Every project and investment is intended to save lives! For more information about the groundbreaking advances funded by Pelotonia, check out http://pelotonia.org/about/impact/.
