Padres Pedal the Cause
Curebound, a San Diego-based philanthropic organization that raises and invests strategic funding in translational cancer research projects, will host its annual signature event, in partnership with the San Diego Padres, Padres Pedal the Cause, on Saturday, March 18 at Petco Park. The community is invited to come together in the fight against cancer and celebrate ten years of impact by raising awareness and funds for innovative cancer research in San Diego. Padres Pedal is San Diego’s most impactful fundraising experience and is gearing up to surpass $20 million in fundraising, making this year the biggest and best “Padres Pedal'' yet.
The event brings together upbeat cycling and running/walking courses with many ways to get involved and participate:
Participants can select from one of four cycling courses (25, 55, 88, or 100 miles), all of which will take riders over the beautiful Coronado Bridge
Participants will also have the option to run or walk a scenic 5K course in downtown San Diego that finishes on the field at Petco Park
There is an option to join a rooftop spin class on top of the historic Western Metal Supply Co. building overlooking Petco Park and downtown San Diego. The spin classes will feature fun, inspirational rides from some of San Diego’s most popular instructors and high-energy music from a live DJ
Attendees will be inspired by the energy and passion of the Padres Pedal community, which is made up of thousands of survivors, families and friends, doctors, scientists, children, and volunteers – all of whom are determined to see cures in our lifetime.
100% of every dollar raised from this event funds collaborative cancer research between Curebound’s six institutional research partners: Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Salk Institute, Sanford Burnham Prebys, Rady Children’s Hospital, La Jolla Institute for Immunology, and Scripps Research.
