JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.

Our founder and my dear friend, 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 - $250,000
2017 - $270,000
2018 - $293,000
For a TOTAL of over $813,000 raised and going directly to rare cancer research.

CLICK. DONATE. FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT.

WE'RE GONNA HIT OUR $1MILLION MARK THIS YEAR.

You know you want to be a part of that. 

Why this matters to me:

50% of People with Cancer Have a Rare Cancer
When combined, about half of all patients fighting cancer are fighting a rare cancer. These are cancers we know — such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid, ovarian, brain, pancreatic, and all pediatric cancers — yet research is largely underfunded.

100% Goes to Lifesaving Research Led by MSK
Every dollar you give will advance innovative studies and clinical trials led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Discoveries made by MSK revolutionize how cancer is diagnosed and treated, helping patients across the country and around the world.

6 Months for Fast Impact
Not only does every dollar go to research, your gift will be in the hands of doctors and researchers within six months of the events. As a donor, you will learn about the projects supported and the breakthroughs made.

Thank you for your support!
