Pedal the Cause has a singular vision for a world without cancer through seeding innovative cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. A challenge to the entire community to participate as a rider at our annual September ride weekend when thousands turn their bikes into “cancer-curing” bikes by riding 10-100 miles. Each participant fundraises for cancer research as part of their commitment. Pedal, in turn, commits to donating 100% of dollars raised by participants to cancer research at Siteman.
Over the past 12 years, $36m has been donated. In addition, the research supported has garnered an additional $250m in federal grants, putting almost a third of a billion dollars into cancer research locally. Hear how Pedal the Cause, Team Venture Café, and the talented researchers make this 7:1 return on initial investment possible and all the work that is getting done.
