Cancer is the #1 cause of death in San Diego and #2 cause of death in the United States. 1-in-3 of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime. In some way, this disease will touch all of our lives: every person, every family, every community.
Since its inception, Padres Pedal the Cause has donated more than $10 million to fund 53 local cancer research projects in San Diego, including five clinical trials. We provide funding for all types of cancer research, with grants awarded to fund explorative discovery research that target specific cancer types and universal studies that benefit multiple kinds of cancer and tumors.
It is our goal that research funded by Padres Pedal the Cause will lead to increased survivorship and ultimately, cures for cancer.
