COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University Athletics Peloton, which is part of Team Buckeye, will hold three movie nights in different Ohio State athletic facilities to raise funds for this year’s Pelotonia.  
 
The first movie night will feature “The Sandlot” on July 13 at 9 p.m. on the Nick Swisher Field at the Bill Davis Baseball Stadium, 560 Borror Drive.
 
The second movie night will feature “Wreck-It Ralph” on July 20 at 8 p.m. at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, 2491 Olentangy River Road.
 
The third movie night will feature “Avengers” on August 2 at 9 p.m. in the Ohio Stadium, 411 Woody Hayes Drive.
 
Admission for each movie is $5, and all funds generated will benefit cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center –  Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.
 
Pelotonia is a three-day experience that includes cycling, entertainment and volunteerism. Pelotonia riders agree to a personal grassroots fundraising commitment that involves requesting donations from friends and family. Over the past four years, thousands of Pelotonia riders have raised more than $42 million for cancer research at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Thanks to the generosity of Pelotonia’s funding partners, the organization is able to direct 100 percent of all money raised by riders and donors to life-saving cancer research.
