What is Pelotonia? Pelotonia is a grassroots bike tour with one goal: to end cancer. Founded in 2008, Pelotonia was established with the objective to fund life-saving cancer research. Pelotonia is a three-day experience that includes a weekend of cycling, entertainment and volunteerism with a community of people coming together to chase down cancer and defeat it. This year’s Pelotonia will take place August 4-6, 2017.
In 2016, riders, virtual riders and volunteers raised a record-breaking $24.1 million, bringing the organization’s eight-year total to $130.1 million. Donors from all 50 states and more than 60 countries contributed to the funds raised by the 275 pelotons. They will participate in routes that range from 25 to 180 miles, starting in Columbus and finishing at one of four destinations.
Pancakes for Pelotonia is sponsored by the Newark campus Peloton “Team Buckeye-Rolling for a Cure” and includes Ohio State faculty, staff, students, friends and family members.
