Pelotonia - Riding to Fight Cancer!

My husband Patrick is very excited to be participating in Pelotonia this year.

What is Pelotonia you ask?

The Story:

Despite the fact that the groundbreaking cancer research performed at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC-James) is beating cancer every day, there remains a desperate need for additional resources to fund the research that will change lives.

Moreover, due to ever-dwindling federal funding, it is becoming harder for great hospitals like OSUCCC-James to attract the talented doctors and scientists whose research will make the difference.

Facing these obstacles in 2008, Dr. Michael Caligiuri, Director of the OSUCCC and CEO of The James, began exploring ways to fill the voids. From his colleagues at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Dr. Caligiuri learned about The Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), an extraordinary cycling event that has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for cancer research at Dana-Farber.

Dr. Caligiuri was excited about the way the Boston community had come together to support the Dana-Farber through PMC and he knew that, given the amazing generosity and tenacious spirit of the Columbus community, a similar Ohio-based cycling experience would go a long way toward generating the additional funding that the OSUCCC-James needs to save lives.

Fortunately, Dr. Caligiuri quickly found gracious and enthusiastic support throughout the Columbus community. Thanks to that support, 100% of every dollar raised by Pelotonia and its riders is directed to essential and innovative cancer research at the OSUCCC-James.


I'm sure everyone out there has been touched by Cancer in some way.  My husband lost his Uncle John to Cancer over 20 years ago and is dedicating his ride to him.  He is also riding for his Aunt Betsy and Uncle Larry who are both survivors and for my Grandfather and Uncle John who lost the battle with Cancer several years go. 

I am so proud of my husband for commiting to this type of event.  He really wanted to participate last year but decided to hold back and volunteer.  This year he couldn't sign up fast enough!!!

A Little More Info:

Patrick will be riding from Columbus to Groveport for a total of 20 miles.

He needs to raise $1200 but hopes to raise more!

If you would like to donate please visit his "Rider Profile Page."

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at

Patrick and I both thank you for taking the time to concider donating!!!

Blogger's Day Of Silence For Japan

We are participating in the blogger's day of silence for Japan. We are well aware of the fact that having a blogging day of silence doesn't help Japan, but we also know that it brings awareness and realization to how extreme this truly is. Take a moment to pray for those in Japan, donate here if you are able to.
We love you Japan and we are praying for you.
