The MICDS community has rallied to support Pedal the Cause, an annual event that raises funds for cancer research through a cycling challenge, since 2010. The MICDS Team, Rams Ride, comprised of students, parents, faculty and alumni, participates in this 15-mile bike ride on September 28 in honor of community members who are battling cancer. This year’s Rams Ride team included 21 members, and MICDS once again hosted a refueling station, staffed by student and parent volunteers. Fundraising continues through the end of October. To date, Rams Ride has raised awareness, community spirit and $4900 for cancer research.
All donations to Pedal the Cause benefit cancer research efforts at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
