The Popticals Team will be riding for our second consecutive year in the Pedal the Cause bike challenge on October 6, 2013 to help provide funding for cancer research. Each year, riders of all skill levels and ages ride in the challenge to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Each rider or team can be sponsored by gathering donations on their team page, and 100% of the donations goes directly towards cancer research.
Pedal the Cause was founded in 2009 with the goal of creating a community-wide cycling fundraising challenge in which all donations raised will stay in St. Louis to provide direct funding for cancer research, cancer discovery grants and clinical translational care not currently eligible for federal funds.
Research beneficiaries include the Cancer Frontier Fund, an initiative of The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital benefiting research at Siteman Cancer Center, and the Children’s Discovery Institute at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
Please consider donating to this great cause by sponsoring the Popticals Team! 100% of donations go towards life-saving research for cancer patients.
