BENEFITING: PEDAL THE CAUSE
EVENT DATE: Apr 09, 2017
About #BoscheStrong -
Dr. Bosche is a close friend and colleague of West County EMS & Fire. Last year, we saw superman himself on the course during the half which was obviously a huge inspiration. This year, we dedicate our run to Dr. Bosche as a tribute to his ongoing slug-fest down at Siteman. No one fights alone. Oh yeah, and F cancer.
About me -
As many of you know, I had stage IV Burkitt's Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma as a child. I can't think of a better way to thank the doctors, nurses, researchers and others who came up with and delivered the treatments that saved my life. While I grew up in another area and was not treated at Siteman and St. Louis Children's, I'm happy to raise money for them.
About Pedal the Cause -
Our mission is to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through our annual cycling challenge. It is our hope that research funded by Pedal the Cause will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.
Founded in 2009, Pedal the Cause had the goal of creating a community-wide cycling fundraising challenge in which all donations raised would stay in St. Louis and benefit Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital to provide direct funding for cancer research, cancer discovery grants and clinical translational care not currently eligible for federal funds.
Additionally, donations from Pedal the Cause make a positive economic impact in the St. Louis community as stronger research funding will continue to support this high profile and critically important segment of the St. Louis economy.
