Charity Event Update


Pedal the Cause Community Service with St. Louis Region, SCCA - 2013

The St. Louis Region SCCA should be very proud of their charity event efforts for the Pedal the Cause event held.  Donations are currently at almost $6000 (donation are still open for 2013 until October 30, 2013). The ASG-SPS Family & Friends Team made the TOP 25 Teams. This is awesome for a team of riders that was only 4 riders Riders were Dave & Beth Whitworth and 2 of Beth’s accountants, Jessica Rekart and Paul Gould. Samantha Whitworth ran the Ameren Kids closeted course ride on Sat and collected $220 for the event. Chris & Natalie Hammond and Brian Sechrist also ran for the Christner Team. Many of the donations have come from SCCA and St. Louis Region members. The region has a long history of being very giving for charities and has supported many such as Shriners, JDRF, DARE, and others.

As many of you already know 5-time SCCA National Solo Champion and former St. Louis Region R.E. Jan Rick is back fighting Cancer.  This time it is Multiple Myeloma.  


Dave Whitworth stated “My mom, Jan Rick, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in June 2013 and we rode help raise funds to find a cure for this disease and other cancers. At this time Multiple Myeloma has no cure.

Dave said “I joined the fight against cancer by participating in the fourth-annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer. “I rode 25 miles on October 6th and I thank all of you who supported this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure.”


The team has committed to doing this event again in 2014. If you are interested in riding in 2014 contact Dave Whitworth at dave@wcsllc.net


Jan Rick said "The SCCA community of people from St. Louis and all over the country has been so supportive.  Solo, road racers, rallycrossers, and everyone have been unbelievable. The friendships made in SCCA are wonderful and the support that so many of these people made are awesome.”

The St. Louis Solo Program hosted a 2 day event on September 21/22 at Family Arena and held a raffle and lunch for donations. The Solo Program Advisory Committee (SAC) donated all the profits of the lunch sales to the cause.

The October Race and the organizers featured a lunch time drive around Gateway and collected additional fund of $225. That was as huge surprise to Jan Rick, who was ill and could not attend the race. She heard about it in FACEBOOK and messages from people who were there. Jan said “I was so touched that this was done, and it was the best medicine I could have that day. Thank you to the race group for doing this and to everyone who donated/”

Pedal the Cause mission is to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through our annual cycling challenge. It is our hope that research funded by Pedal the Cause will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer. 100% of all the donations stay right there in St. Louis for Cancer Research.

Founded in 2009, Pedal the Cause has the goal of creating a community-wide cycling fundraising challenge in which all donations raised will stay in St. Louis to provide direct funding for cancer research, cancer discovery grants and clinical translational care not currently eligible for federal funds.

A big Thank You to so may people who worked so hard to make this a success.
