This year’s ride had record fundraising amounts of $13,108,639, reflecting a 68% increase over the 2010 efforts. Roush Honda contributed $22,016.12 towards that amount, Jack Maxton raised $7,806.17 and Team Buckeyecars raised $7528.04. In the three short years of its existence, the Pelotonia has raised over $25 million with 100% of every dollar raised by riders, virtual riders and volunteers is invested in research initiatives conducted by the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center and the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Pelotonia consists of a three-day experience that includes cycling, entertainment and volunteerism. Pelotonia riders agree to a personal grass roots fundraising commitment that involves requesting donations from friends and family. Over the past three years, thousands of Pelotonia riders have raised tens of millions of dollars for cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. Due to the generosity of Pelotonia’s funding partners, the organization is able to direct 100% of all donations to life saving cancer research.
