“Why I Pedal” Contest

#WhyIPedalSD FB

Padres Pedal the Cause is pleased to announce our “Why I Pedal” Contest. We love to hear about why people choose to take part in our mission to create a world without cancer. This contest gives you the chance to share why you ride with the Padres Pedal community. Are you a cancer fighter, too? Tell us why you’re joining the cause.


Join the “Why I Pedal” Contest beginning on August 2, 2017 on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram social media channels. Just share a photo or video, tag Padres Pedal and use our hashtag, and explain why you choose to ride for Pedal the Cause and what motivates you to keep going. Are you passionate about cancer research? Are you, a friend or a family member a cancer survivor? Are you riding for someone living with cancer right now? There are so many reasons to join our cause and help us fund life-saving research to help end cancer. Tell us why you do it!

Want to pedal for a pediatric oncology patient at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego? Join our Ride for a Child program and get your team paired with a patient and family currently receiving treatment.
