Pelotonia 2012 was another smashing success—and leading the non-corporate Pelotons was, once again, Stefanie’s Team of Hope. At press time, the team is expected to raise nearly $325,000. Since the event’s inception, Stefanie’s Team of Hope has raised more than $800,000 for cancer research, and 100 percent of every dollar raised goes directly to The James.
This year’s team had 145 riders, virtual riders and volunteers who came from every suburb in Columbus, as well as all parts of Ohio: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Findlay, Dayton, Canton. We even had riders from other states: Texas, Michigan, North Carolina, New York, Kentucky and Washington, DC. “This support is a testament to the countless lives that Stefanie and Chris have touched,” says Shannon Peterson, Stefanie’s Team of Hope peloton captain.
Pelotonia is a three-day experience that includes a weekend of cycling, entertainment and volunteerism, all with One Goal—a cure for cancer!
