Seventy bicyclists and approximately 100 volunteers took part in the first annual Pedal for Pēds fundraiser on September 25, 2010.
Riders pedaled their way through either a 25 mile or 50 mile loop that began at Mcdougle Middle School and followed paths through Orange and Alamance counties.
Approximately $10,000 was raised to support UNC’s pediatric hematology/oncology division. Funds will provide assistance with such patient expenses as gas, parking, and food; the division’s fellowship program; and small research projects.
Special thanks to the community and to Marty and Meg Pomerantz, the Bothwell and Minta families, and Cycle 9.
Race t-shirts and wristbands are still available for sale. If you are interested in purchasing them, leave a message for Julie Blatt, MD, at 919-966-0590.
