|$0 My Commitment: $2,000.00|
|Congrats! Keep going!|
This will be my 5th year participating in Pelotonia and I have committed to riding the 100-mile route again. While contemplating all the training and fundraising that must be done, I'm keeping in mind all the positive energy of everybody working together towards ONE GOAL -> END CANCER. It is this ambitious goal that keeps me motivated. Please join me in working towards this goal by donating whatever amount you can towards cancer research.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of every dollar you donate goes directly to cancer research at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.
I'm thankful for the opportunity to ride with the L Brands Peloton once again. The company (Limited Brands) behind my peloton generously matches every dollar I raise, so your donation can have an even bigger impact!
If you are reading this after I've completed my ride on August 4th, you can still make a donation through my page to help me reach my goal and contribute to Pelotonia '18. The campaign ends October 5th!
Lastly, you should know that my inspiration for riding in Pelotonia came from my mom's (Joanne Palun) battle with pancreatic cancer and her treatment at The James. She faced her diagnosis courageously and though extremely difficult, she completed all the treatments needed in order to have the surgery that removed her cancer in August 2014. Undoubtedly, her treatment plan designed to work against the unique genes and molecules of her cancer along with the complex surgery she had was the fruit of much cancer research. While I'm grateful that this all extended her life, the cancer did return and sadly took her life on May 1, 2017. So, I ride in her honor and memory to raise money for additional research to be funded so that more advancements in treatment can be made and the ONE GOAL -> END CANCER can become a reality.
If you would like to make a contribution towards cancer research and support me on my 100-mile ride, please click on the "DONATE TO MY RIDE" box above my profile picture and follow the instructions on the subsequent pages.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support!
