The Pedal with Pete Foundation is a philanthropic organization, dedicated to raising funds for research to improve the quality of life for persons with cerebral palsy.
In 1993, the Pedal-With-Pete Foundation was established to raise money for research to help prevent, treat, and even cure the effects of cerebral palsy. The Pedal-with-Pete Foundation annually moderates three charity cycling and walking events in the midwest:
With the dollars we raise, we award grants to researchers from around the world who do ground-breaking work to improve the lives of people with CP. Our grants range from $25,000 to $35,000, and tend to be seed-funding that might lead to larger grants by organizations like the NIH or CDC. Our grants are vital for kick-starting promising efforts that will really change lives.
As an all-volunteer organization, your time volunteering for Pedal-with-Pete is GREATLY appreciated by the participants, the researchers, and especially, by the millions of people worldwide who benefit from the research you help to fund!
