Each summer thousands of passionate people come together to participate in Pelotonia. Pelotonia is a 25-125 mile bike ride each August that raises money supporting cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Since the ride started in 2008, it has raised over $207 million, each dollar going to fight cancer.
Due to COVID there wont be a typical ride weekend, but I am so excited to announce that 15% of sales from the Pelotonia products will be donated to The James to help further cancer research. I may not be able to go riding with thousands of my closest friends, but that won’t stop me from helping to win the fight against this terrible disease.
As someone who has seen lives touched by cancer this is something I am profoundly passionate about. I’ve thankfully seen family come through their cancer battle and enter remission, but I’ve also watched as cancer has taken too many lives too soon.
I have many personal ties to The James and I am so thankful and excited to be helping to support the work done there. Fundraising for 2020 is currently taking place and will continue through October 31. I will be continuing to add products to the Pelotonia Collection through the summer and early fall.

One day we will find a cure for cancer, and I am so thankfully to be able to help along the way.
