Pelotonia 2011 was another huge success – and one of its most successful pelotons was Stefanie’s Team of Hope. At press time, the team is expected to raise about $250,000. Pelotonia was established with the objective to fund cancer research. Pelotonia is a three-day experience that includes a weekend of cycling, entertainment and volunteerism.
Pelotonia is able to direct 100 percent of every dollar raised to cancer research at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. To learn more about Pelotonia, visit www.pelotonia.org.
“Stefanie’s Team of Hope is a community of people who have joined together to celebrate the life of our Champion, Stefanie Spielman and to carry on her legacy of hope”, says Shannon Peterson, who helps lead the Peloton. “We will ride in honor of Stefanie and all those affected by cancer until we live in a world that’s cancer-free.”
This year, Stefanie’s Team of Hope included 108 riders, virtual riders and volunteers hailing from not only all parts of Columbus, but Cleveland, Findlay, Cincinnati and Canton, as well as Kentucky, Michigan and New York.
Congratulations to Stefanie’s Team of Hope – we are looking forward to an even better year in 2012!
