|Congrats! Keep going!|
About 12-13 years ago, my father, the picture of health, felt like he was having stroke-like symptoms. After a visit to the doctor and numerous tests, he was diagnosed with Stage IV Glioblastoma. While the doctors gave him just 6 months to live, like everything else he did, he fought valiantly and persevered, living another 2-3 years before succumbing to the cancer in September of 2009.
This year marks the 10-year anniversary of his death, and Pelotonia will be one month short of that date.
It was around this time that I was helping to launch the Livestrong brand at Dick's Sporting Goods which tied in to our campaign with St. Jude's Thanks and Giving program. The stories that came to us from these organizations were strong and powerful.
Last year, living in Columbus, I became acquainted with the movement that is Pelatonia from numerous perspectives including reconnecting with Doug Ulman, CEO of Pelatonia and a friend from when he ran Livestrong. The power of the movement and what they do to raise money for cancer research is very strong with 100% of the funds raised going to research.
In my inaugural year in Pelotonia last year, I was amazed at the power, the passion and the community effort, riding farther on a bike than I ever had.
I look forward to doing it all over again and continuing to raise what I can to help this organization drive towards a cancer-free future.
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 $158 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.
