Padres Pedal for the Cause provides funding and support for cancer research teams at various facilities throughout San Diego like Moores Cancer Center at UCSD Health and Rady Children’s Hospital. In past years, Padres Pedal for the Cause has donated more than $7.1 million to fund over 40 local cancer research projects. Padres Pedal for the Cause donates 100% of every rider-raised dollar to support the collaborative research efforts.

Founded by two-time lymphoma survivor Bill Koman, Pedal for the Cause is a multi-city cycling challenge that began in St. Louis in 2009 and opened in San Diego in 2013. In 2016, the San Diego organization partnered with the San Diego Padres and moved the event downtown to its current home at Petco Park and have raised over $20 million for cancer research collectively. Every dollar funds lifesaving cancer research in San Diego.

This year, Pedal for the Cause will take place on Saturday, November 17, 2018, at Petco Park in downtown San Diego. With various bike courses to choose from, 5K walk/run or spin classes for adults and a designated youth track for kids from 3-12 years old, this event is guaranteed to be fun for the whole family.
