Pedal for Peds raises money to support UNC's Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology

On Saturday, September 21 over 100 bicycle riders from all over the Carolinas participated in the 4th Annual Pedal for Peds (pronounced pēds) bike ride.

The race featured a full 50-mile ride, a 28-mile ride and family entertainment. The event raised over $23,000 to support pediatric hematology-oncology.

Julie Blatt, MD, Professor of Pediatrics at the UNC School of Medicine and member of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, helps organize the event each year. “This was a great team effort,” she said. “We especially appreciate all the help from our sponsors, families and volunteers.”

All proceeds from the ride will be used to fund pediatric cancer research, fellowship education, and other beneficial programs for children served by UNC's Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology. This program treats the full range of childhood cancers, including leukemias, lymphomas and solid tumors.

Pictures will be posted on the Pedal for Peds website, pedalforpeds.org, in the coming weeks. Even though the event has passed, donations will continue to be accepted on their fundraising website here. A list of event sponsors can be found here.
