|$0 My Goal: $1,501.00|
I’m excited to share with you that I’ve committed to ride 45 miles in my 3rd Pelotonia and raise funds for cancer research! After seeing so many lives affected by cancer in my community I have decided that I want to play a part in finding a cure for this terrible disease and I will ride in honor of those who are currently fighting and in memory of those who have passed on.
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. 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, 8,022 Riders from 39 states and 7 countries participated along with 3,576 Virtual Riders and 3,044 Volunteers. 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/.
Please consider supporting me today by making a donation towards my Ride. With 100% of your donation going directly toward improving lives through innovative research, you can rest assured that you are making a difference. This year marks Pelotonia’s 10th Anniversary, and we are setting out to do more than we ever have before.
