Dear Friends & Family,
On March 18th, I will be cycling with Team Sempra in this year's Padres Pedal the Cause event. Please donate here or on Facebook .
As in the previous years, I am riding in honor of my son, Idan, who at age four was diagnosed and treated for Leukemia ALL T-cell for 2 ½ years at Rady's Children's hospital. Today, Idan is a healthy 24 year old who graduated from the University of Toronto with a BA in Human Biology and minors in Immunology and BioEthics. His goal is to one day help other children battle cancer by becoming a Pediatric Oncologist or a researcher. We are so proud of him.
I am riding in memory of my friend and fellow biker, Jeff Avruch, who passed away after a long battle with cancer. Jeff - you are always in my thoughts, especially when I pedal down the 101 highway. Our rides are not the same without you.
1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer.
I am joining the effort to help accelerate cures for cancer by raising funds at Padres Pedal the Cause 2024. 100% of every dollar raised funds collaborative research among San Diego's top research institutions:
- UC San Diego Health
- Rady Children's Hospital
- Salk Institute
- Sanford Burnham Prebys
- Scripps Research
- La Jolla Institute of Immunology
With over $18 million raised to date, Padres Pedal the Cause has already funded 80+ innovative research grants in all types of cancer.
Please consider supporting me with a donation of any amount that is meaningful to you.
Thank you ,
