Bob Evans Farms, Inc. is proud to partner with Pelotonia for its second year. A peloton is a tightly packed group of bicycle riders who work as a team to advance on a journey, and Pelotonia is an annual cycling event in Columbus, Ohio, that raises money to fund cancer research. Pelotonia’s single goal is to end cancer and to reach that goal they donate 100% of every dollar raised to essential and innovative cancer research at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital in Columbus. In 2009, Pelotonia raised more than $4.5 million for cancer research.
As a proud supporter of the James and the mission to end cancer, Bob Evans partnered again to feed the Pelotonia riders breakfast for the two-day event and recruited a team of riders and volunteers. Our coffee station was a welcome addition to the early-morning starts. New this year, we also served the meal at the celebration/ finish for the Columbus to Groveport (23 mile) leg of the ride.
Pelotonia is unique in that it asks riders to not only commit to a challenging physical feat, but it also requires a large fundraising commitment. Last year the Bob Evans team rode 940 miles and raised over $33,000 for this important cause. This year we are raising the stakes and plan to increase our support.
How can you help?
Although the Pelotonia ride took place August 20-22, we are still raising money for the cause through the month of October.
