Anyone who would like to participate in Pelotonia 12 as a rider, virtual rider or volunteer should visit to register for this year's tour, which will unfold Aug. 10-12 on six routes of varying distances between Columbus and Gambier, Ohio (home to Kenyon College).

This webpage provides details and online forms for registering as an adult (16 or older), as a minor (those 14 or 15 may ride the 25- or 50-mile routes), as a virtual rider or as a volunteer. Riders must agree to raise the amount of funds specified for their chosen route. Thanks to generous event underwriters, all money raised by riders, virtual riders and donors will go directly to cancer research at the OSUCCC – James.

Last year's Pelotonia attracted nearly 5,000 riders from 38 states and four nations. It also involved some 1,700 volunteers. The event raised $13.1 million, bringing the three-year fundraising total for Pelotonia to approximately $25.5 million. Questions? Contact Karl Koon, director of development/Pelotonia at the OSUCCC – James, at



The Pelotonia Fellowship Program at Ohio State provides two-year research fellowships for promising postdoctoral candidates from any discipline—from the traditional sciences to such fields as history, business, engineering and humanities—who want to help cure cancer. These fellowships pay a competitive annual stipend based on National Institutes of Health (NIH) guidelines for postdoctoral fellows.
Applications are scored on:

• Applicant strengths and research potential (emphasis is
given to clinical fellows and to applicants who received
their doctorate within the past year and will be new
to Ohio State, or who have been at the University less
than one year, and who have the potential to become independent scientists);

• Mentor/adviser qualifications and training record;

• Innovativeness and impact of the project to cancer research.

Applications are due three times per year. For more information, including eligibility guidelines and an application, visit or send an email to
