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 has 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.
Our research beneficiaries include the Cancer Frontier Fund, an initiative of The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital benefitting research at Siteman Cancer Center and the Children's Discovery Institute at St. Louis Children's Hospital.
Additionally, donations from Pedal the Cause will 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.
