|$0 My Goal: $500.00|
Cancer impacted my life from a young age. In 2011, my mother started her fight against cancer "blind folded" with no research, no statistics, no plan, no hope. The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) gives patients a chance to fight cancer "eyes wide open".
Now more than ever the need for cancer research funding is vital. During this pandemic individuals are still being diagnosed with cancer. It’s up to us as a community to continue to fund ground-breaking research in order to not slow progress toward our One Goal.
To date, I've raised $15,000 towards the fight against cancer. For 2020, there is an extra addition to my adventure. I have a partner in crime. Together, Baby Elijah and I commit to walking 100 miles and fundraising to honor the love ones we've lost (and sadly the ones Elijah will never have the opportunity to meet), honor those who are fighting for their lives, and make strides for the hope that one day, Elijah will not have to worry about the life shaking disease.
As a reminder, 100% of every dollar you donate is invested in innovative cancer research, the brightest minds and ideas, and the tools and technology needed to change the future of cancer care. In just twelve years, the Pelotonia community has raised more than $209 million, but we aren’t stopping there. Please consider supporting me today by making a donation. Together, we can be legendary.
