|$0 My Goal: $100.00|
|Congrats! Keep going!|
I've lived in Columbus for almost six years now - and joining the Pelotonia movement for me is long overdue. I am so happy to finally take part in this tremendous movement.
In October 2016, we lost my grandmother Renee to ovarian cancer. She fought through two bouts with this unforgiving disease and losing her was absolutely devastating. I'll never forget seeing her the day before she passed - so incredibly weakened by something that was entirely out of her control. She loved her family more than anything in the entire world - and with this ride, I hope to tangibly express that love right on back to her. With this ride, I hope to further cherish and honor her memory alongside so many others that have been affected by cancer and the like.
I’ve joined the Greatest Team Ever, a community of legendary Riders, Virtual Riders, Volunteers, Researchers, Donors, and passionate fundraisers who have committed to join forces to make amazing things happen. 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. Anyone can be a legend. Join us today.
