Pedal The Cause

// September 21 - September 22

Pedal the Cause, presented by Edward Jones, returns for its fifteenth year of raising critical funds for adult and pediatric cancer research with an exciting lineup of cycling and community events. On September 21 and 22, thousands will gather in St. Charles for a celebratory weekend of pedaling, community, festivities and family fun. Registration is now open for bike riders of all levels, spinners, virtual fundraisers, Kids Challengers and volunteers with a passion to create a world without cancer.

Pedal the Cause is one of the top-ten largest cause-related cycling events in the country, having donated over $45.8 million since 2010 to fund the best and brightest ideas in cancer research. All – 100 percent – of participant-raised funds support innovative cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. This research is producing new treatments and cures for cancer for patients in St. Louis and around the world and is research that would otherwise go unfunded. To date, Pedal the Cause has funded 219 cancer research projects – 171 adult and 48 pediatric.

“The 15th anniversary of Pedal the Cause gives us so much to look forward to,” said David Drier, executive director of Pedal the Cause. “Our new event venue, the Family Arena in St. Charles, is emblematic of our growth as a regional event. With this new venue, comes all new courses for riders of all levels that cross 3 counties, 2 states and 2 major rivers. We all have a reason to hope and fight for a world without cancer, and there is truly a way for everyone to get involved in Pedal the Cause. We look forward to welcoming all who have been affected by this terrible disease to join us on the road to end cancer.”

Saturday, September 21 will feature the Kids Challenge in the morning, and Taste the Cause and the Inspirational Program in the evening to honor and remember those affected by cancer. Sunday, September 22 will include a full day or riding, spinning and gathering as a community to joyfully celebrate 15 years of impact.

In 2023, 4,000 participants of all ages joined Pedal the Cause, cycling, spinning, volunteering or through at-home virtual activities. Participants and teams raised funds from March through October, totaling $5,003,916. The generous support of sponsors, led by Edward Jones, ensures that 100 percent of donations made to Pedal the Cause directly fund cancer research.
