My daughter, Colleen Lillie Runyan, started riding in Peletonia several years ago after her Granpa Lillie passed away from Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and Papaw Rice passed from lung cancer, her spirit to join this cause had me volunteering. Now, I volunteer in memory of Len Lillie, Ed Rice (my dad), my friend Jeff Wilson, and others lost due to cancer and in honor of those survivors, Karen G., Laura G., Trina S, Polly M. and many other survivor friends and family members.
This is the Greatest Team Ever, a community of riders, virtual riders, volunteers, researchers, donors, donors and passionate fundraisers who committed to join forces to make amazing things happen. In just ten years the Pelotonia community raised over $184 million for cancer research. But we aren’t stopping there. Every single dollar we raise is invested in innovative cancer research, the brightest minds and ideas, and the tools and technology needed to reach our one goal. Please join me in supporting this cause and let’s save lives. Remember - 100% of every single dollar raised is directed to life-saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Your support matters. Join me. Together, we are unstoppable.
