Founded by Bill Koman, a two-time lymphoma survivor, Pedal the Cause seeks to provide funding for the best cancer research available in San Diego. The nonprofit was established to fund, plan and manage an annual cycling fundraiser in order to accomplish this goal. And, 100% of the proceeds from the event remain in San Diego and benefit cancer patients.

Pedal the Cause recently announced plans for its second annual event at its launch gathering. The 2nd Annual Pedal the Cause will occur on Sept. 20 and 21 at UC San Diego. 92130 residents and cancer survivors, Brett Chodorow and Jim Mazzola were in attendance at the launch. As president of the CareFusion Foundation, Jim Mazzola spoke about his company’s involvement with Pedal the Cause.“CareFusion is once again proud to support Pedal the Cause in their effort to fund the necessary research to discover lifesaving cures and to improve cancer care,” he stated.
