Where does the Money go?
Pelotonia is the annual charity bike ride that benefits the Ohio State University James Cancer Center and Solove Research Institute. In its first three years, Pelotonia has attracted over 8,300 riders from 38 states, about 2,800 volunteers, hundreds of thousands of donors and raised $25.4 million for cancer research. 100% of every penny donated to Pelotonia goes towards the James Cancer Center for cancer research, and that much closer to a cure.
As the Midwest’s first and Ohio’s only freestanding cancer hospital and research institute, The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute is one of only 40 centers in the United States designated by the National Cancer Institute as a Comprehensive Cancer Center. The James is a national leader in creating and testing new therapies based on scientific research, many of which are offered nowhere else in the world.
