Since 2009, Pelotonia has raised over $157 million for innovative cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center–James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
Pelotonia dollars have funded a statewide initiative aimed at identifying those at high risk for colorectal, ovarian, and uterine cancer so they can seek preventative care.
Pelotonia dollars have supported the groundbreaking clinical trials of Ibrutinib, which is now FDA approved for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia and mantle cell lymphoma.
We have been able to spend several years focusing on why some instances of squamous cell carcinoma (skin cancer) become fatal. We are close to discovering what makes certain tumors in this cancer fatal for thousands of people each year. Our work has led to a point of great discovery, but we can do much more.
