WHAT is Pelotonia? Pelotonia is an amazing organization that was established with the objective to fund life-saving cancer research. They put on a three day event filled with cycling, entertainment and volunteerism in hopes to one day find a cure for cancer. This community of passionate fundraisers has raised more than $185 MILLION for high-risk, high-reward cancer research. 100 percent, that is every penny of every single dollar donated goes directly towards cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
HOW am I participating? I have committed to ride 25 miles on Saturday August 3rd of Pelotonia weekend! My fundraising commitment for the ride is $1,250 and 100% of that will go towards cancer research!
WHY is this so important to me? 18 years ago when I was in middle school, my grandpa was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Over the course of a few short months, I watched my grandpa wither away right in front of me. Hopelessness was all I felt. Absolutely nothing I could do to help him. And I want to change that! I'm riding with Pelotonia to fight to end cancer! I'm not a cancer researcher, but I can support someone who is.
Together, I truly believe we can make a difference. That is why I ask for your support. Any donation helps, no matter how small.
