JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.
Welcome to Team Pedaling Sunshine!
Our founder, Kelly Leach, is a cancer survivor. Kelly was diagnosed in August of 2014 with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare cancer. After 12 rounds of chemo and 8 weeks of radiation, Kelly finished treatment in September of 2015 and continues to be cancer free. She is grateful for her doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and for the love and support of her family and friends that gave her the strength to get through her cancer journey.
And now the tables are turned - rare cancers beware! Kelly launched Team Pedaling Sunshine in 2016, and in it’s inaugural year, the team of 190 riders in 10 cities raised over $250,000! In 2017, Team Pedaling Sunshine raised an additional $270,000. You can do the math…that’s over $520,000 in just 2 years! EVERY DOLLAR went to rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering. In fact, major breakthroughs have been made with this Cycle for Survival funding: new drugs are extending lives of Ewing’s sarcoma patients, and immunotherapy is becoming the disruptive technology in cancer treatment. Cycle for Survival is already doing what President Obama’s Moonshot initiative was all about. If you haven’t already, it’s time for you to JOIN THE BATTLE!

Our team name, Pedaling Sunshine was inspired by the fact that Kelly has been singing “You are My Sunshine” to her two sons, Ryan (10) and Tyler (6) since the day that were born. Her boys and her husband Dave are the reasons for her battle. The battlefront is on the bikes. See you there!
Welcome to our team's page!
We are raising money for Cycle for Survival, the movement to beat rare cancers.
Will you help us surpass our fundraising goal?
Rare cancer research is underfunded, but we can change that. While we can’t all be doctors or researchers, we can raise the money that makes their lifesaving work possible. Cycle for Survival supporters have funded over one hundred clinical trials and studies, leading to new discoveries that are helping patients today.
But there is still more work to be done.
100% of every dollar you give funds pioneering research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events.
About 50% of all people diagnosed with cancer are battling a rare cancer. Too many people are touched by this disease, and yet many with rare cancers don’t have a proven, if any, treatment plan—that’s unacceptable.
Help us: Join our team or make a donation today. Your efforts will fight cancer and make a real impact.
Thank you in advance for your support! Together, we can bring new and better treatments to patients worldwide.
