Pedal the Cause is a 501c3 multi-city community cycling challenge with the mission to end cancer. In 2013, the bike ride came to San Diego to raise money for innovative life-saving cancer research conducted by four local world-class beneficiaries: Moores Cancer Center at UCSD Health, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Sanford-Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, and Rady Children’s Hospital. Last year in San Diego alone, 800+ riders raised $1.3 million that funded 7 innovative and collaborative research projects.
In 2016, the organization formed a new partnership with the San Diego Padres which is reflected in the new name: Padres Pedal the Cause. Many exciting changes accompanied that transition including moving the event to Petco Park where participants ride onto the field and celebrate with their friends and family.
