8.19.11-8.21.11

In its first two rides, Pelotonia has attracted over 6,000 riders from 35 states, about 2,800 volunteers, hundreds of thousands of donors and raised $12.3 million for cancer research. 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.

Pelotonia is a collective effort of many to end cancer. Many people have been effected by cancer in some shape or form. Cancer comes in many forms and brings with it pain and loss. Pelotonia gives hope and opportunity to take on cancer. Pelotonia is a platform for many to share, deal, and conquer the lasting effects of cancer. It is more than a fundraiser.

Pelotonia’s goal is to raise 50 million is the first five years of the event. Corporate Partners, such as the Limited Brands Foundation, Huntington Bank and the Richard and Peggy Santulli Foundation, cover the expenses to afford Pelotonia the ability to donate every cent raised to cancer research.
