Pedal the Cause celebrates ‘Top 25’ fundraisers and $470,000 raised for cancer research

On Dec. 2, Amy and Bill Koman hosted another fabulous event at their Rancho Santa Fe home in support of Pedal the Cause and the fight against cancer. The exclusive gathering honored Pedal’s “Top 25” fundraisers who collectively raised more than $470,000 for lifesaving cancer research right here in San Diego.

San Diego Padres’ CEO Mike Dee wrapped up the evening’s toasts with an exciting announcement of the club’s new partnership with Pedal the Cause and plans to make Petco Park the new venue for Pedal beginning in November of 2016.

Founded in 2013, Pedal the Cause San Diego is a cycling fundraising challenge with a mission to end cancer by raising money for cancer research at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies and Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego. The ultimate goal is that research funded by Pedal the Cause will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.
