Pedal the Cause - Raising money to eradicate cancer on this planet!!!

BENEFITING: PEDAL THE CAUSE
EVENT DATE: Apr 08, 2017
I HATE CANCER!!! And sometimes I feel totally helpless in the face of finding out another person I love has been struck with this awful disease!!! Joining PEDAL THE CASUE has been one of the best ways I have found to take my power back and to tell CANCER that I WILL WIN THIS FIGHT!!!
I was diagnosed with unterine cancer 6 years ago and today am a GRATEFUL SURVIVOR! My Dad died of aggrressive prostate cancer 3 years ago. My Mom is a 2 time survivor of cancer - malignant melanoma and endometrial cancer. My cousin had Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma as a teenager. I have multiple friends who have beat and who have sucummed to breast cancer. I HATE CANCER!!!
Usually I ride my bike for fundraising, this year I am walking too. I have pledged to raise at least $1,000 this year and am ready to crush my goal!! Will you please help me in my efforts? No amount is too small nor too big.
If you want to do more, you can join me in walking. Phoebe and I will be walking (strolling or just flat out piggy backing our way) down the 5K route.
You don't need a bike to help end cancer! Pedal the Cause is excited to offer the St. Louis community additional opportunities to fight for a world without cancer through our partnership with GO! St. Louis Marathon & Family Fitness Weekend on April 8-9, 2017. COME JOIN US!!!
