Padres Pedal the Cause is one of the best places to donate for cancer research. You can choose how to direct your donation, whether you donate directly to a Rider or to a Team. If you choose, you can also make a general donation to Padres Pedal. No matter how you donate money to cancer research through Padres Pedal, you’ll know you’re making a difference and donating to an incredible cause: Helping create a world without cancer.

In fact, many studies funded by Padres Pedal may never have happened without the donations you and others like you make each and every year. Innovative research projects that have had difficulty finding the required financial backing through grants and other sources are often able to get off the ground because of the funding we’ve been able to provide. While we focus our funding efforts in the San Diego area, researchers and doctors from across the country have been able to collaborate on studies to help identify, prevent and cure various cancers. Your donations make this research possible.
