A Bike Ride to End Cancer

Pelotonia is a bike race in Columbus, Ohio with a mission to end cancer. All funds raised through the event will go directly to cancer research at The James. Our founder, Ryan, will be riding 100 miles to support the cause. You can support Ryan here.

Here’s his story:

“Over the past year, I have lost both my Grandfathers to cancer. My roommate’s dad is also battling brain cancer and I have grown to love and care for this man, Milton Schott. I have signed up to ride 100 miles to honor not only my Grandfathers and Milt, but also every human that has come into contact with cancer in some way, which is most of us. While we have not yet found a cure for cancer, it is only through the support of the community that this goal can be reached. I will proudly ride 100 miles to make any impact that I can toward this cause.

Every dollar raised goes directly to one of the most critical cancer research facilities in the world, The James, which is right here in Columbus, Ohio. No matter how small the donation you can make, it will make a difference in our race to end cancer - in our race to improve the lives of our families, our friends, and the future of the human race.”
