JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.
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 through many, many small donations, Team Pedaling Sunshine is proud of the following fundraising totals:
2016 - $257,614
2017 - $272,835
2018 - $293,152
2019 - $351,746
For a TOTAL of over $1,175,347 raised and going directly to rare cancer research!
In 2019 we reached the $1 million fundraising milestone - after just 4 years of rides! We hope you’ll join our team of over 100 riders in 6 cities as we celebrate our 5th year of rides!
What Team Pedaling Sunshine - Boston has raised in the last 5 years:
2017 - $38,420
2018 - $55,833
2019 - $64,242
EVERY DOLLAR raised goes 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 (11) and Tyler (7) 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!
