My Fundraising Progress:
$0 My Goal: $2,001.00

Hello Friends and Family!

This year, I have joined my amazing coworkers, and thousands of other people participating in Pelotonia. In just eleven years the Pelotonia community raised over $208 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. In July 2019, Pelotonia announced the creation of the Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. The institute launched with an initial $102,265,000 pledge from the Pelotonia community. This money will be raised over the next 5 years and represents the 2,265 riders who participated in the first Pelotonia in 2009. Please consider supporting me today by making a donation to support my fundraising goal. 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. 

Cancer affects everybody. Personally, I have seen multiple people close to me fight the fight of their lives. Whether it was a neighbor, an aunt, or a significant other, I am reminded daily of how important it is to find the cure to this deadly disease. I am also riding for the firefighters who are much more likely to get cancer than the average population. According to a recent study by the National Institute for Occupaitional Safety and Health, firefighters are 9% more likely to get cancer during their lifetime, and 14% more likely to die from it. As a daughter of a firefighter, this statistic is scary. That's why I will be biking 343 miles over the course of the summer to show support for those dealing with cancer this August. I am pushing myself to raise $2,000 over the next few months that will be directed to innovative cancer research. Please join me in my fundraising effort!
