This weekend Pedal the Cause hosted the Ride for a Child picnic at Forest Park. More than 100 ride participants gathered to recognize the 20 Ride for a Child children and their families. It was an emotional and inspiring day, and a great chance for everyone there to get to know the children, all of whom are cancer fighters. DJ is Team Powered by Hope’s ride for a child, and is a special boy with a huge smile and a big heart.
During the event, I was invited to say a few words and surprise the children with a Powered by Hope medal presentation. It was a very moving and uplifting moment to see the delight on their faces and know how special they felt to receive the medals. You can check out the full album of photos on my Facebook page, but here are a couple of favorites.
I invite you to read more about Pedal the Cause, and if you can, join the Powered by Hope team as a virtual rider. One hundred percent of your contribution will go to help Siteman Cancer Center and Children’s Hospital so one day we can live in world without cancer.
