Why I Ride

In addition to supporting my cousin Leisa Zigman, I am riding in the fourth-annual Pedal The Cause bike challenge in memory of Ronni Handelman, my mother-in-law, who passed away from non-smokers lung cancer in May 2011. Ronni survived for five years after her diagnosis. Ronni believed so firmly in charity and finding a cure for lung cancer that upon her passing, Gary Handelman, my father-in-law and Ronni's husband, fulfilled Ronni's wish to establish the Ronni Handelman Lung Cancer Research Fund.

The Pedal The Cause bike challenge mission is to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital. Pedal The Cause raises its funds through its annual cycling challenge and 100% of the funds raised remain here in St. Louis to support the Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

In Ronni's memory, I ask you to please help me in the journey to find a cure for cancer by donating to my ride. I have committed to raise $500 for cancer research and 100% of your donation will go to directly to this cause.

I plan to ride 100 miles on September 28 and I hope you will join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure. Thank you for your consideration.
