Pedal the Cause
Sept. 23-24, 2023
Register for team Heads Up and enjoy these fun events:
- Kids challenge on Saturday morning
- Taste the Cause and Inspirational Program on Saturday night
- Rides and spinning events on Sunday
Team Heads Up needs you to ride, spin, volunteer, or you can donate. The donation is $125 (or more) to a New Riders Fund to pay registration fees for any staff and residents who want to ride for the first time.
First time riders discount code: If you are a staff member or resident and want to ride but the registration fee is holding you back, use CODE: 23HeadsUp (not case sensitive).
Discount: $125 off ride/spin registration
Usage: The code is limited to the first eight registrants to use it, so don’t delay, sign up today!
First team ride social: May 21st, 8:00 AM at the Chesterfield Levee. Meet your team for Gatorade and a snack and ride 10, 20, or 30+ miles. Join us even if you haven’t signed up yet.
Barriers to participating
I don’t know how to ride a bike.
Answer: Spin on a stationary bike or volunteer.
I don’t like to ask for money.
Answer: I’ll bet you don’t like cancer even more than you don’t like to ask for money.
According to Co-captain Liz Buchman, “It is not hard to ask for donations because everyone you know has been touched by cancer and wants to help. I just register with pedalthecause.org, update my page with ‘why a cancer cure is important to me’, click a link to put it on Facebook or Instagram, and small donations really add up!”
I don’t want to volunteer alone.
Answer: Get some colleagues to sign up too, and we can get a designated volunteer gig for all team Heads Up volunteers. It will be fun and help cure cancer.
If you have any ideas for ways we can connect with one another or ideas for Pedal weekend, please share them with any of your team captains: Don Conine, Liz Buchman and Patrik Pipkorn, MD.
