|$0 My Commitment: $3,000.00|
Where can you find a Fundraiser with 100% of the raised funds directly spent on Research? One word PELOTONIA.
Pelotonia is an annual bike ride that raises money for the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute at The Ohio State University. One hundred percent of the money raised by riders goes directly to support life-saving cancer research.
This is my Fifth year riding. I plan to ride 200 miles. If Cancer patients and victims can endure with bravery, days, months, even years, then what is one weekend of bike riding?
Every one is impacted by Cancer. I personally lost many family members and friends to this ailment. They all battled Cancer to the end.
Two persons affected me the most: The first is my Grandfather that I lost to lung cancer. The second is his wife and my Grandmother. She actually beat it at the incredible age of 75. Now 89 years old. She may have slowed down a tiny bit, but she is still the spitfire sprited lady that is enjoying life to the fullest. She would not have survived if it was not for the efforts of the amazing doctors, researchers, donors, and investors that invested money, time, life, blood, and sweat into beating Cancer.
I hope you will consider joining me in my 200-mile bike riding, fundraising (100% goes to reasearch) adventure so together we can help find a cure.
