History

Our Story

about-history-graphic

Founded in 2008, Pelotonia was established with the objective to fund life-saving cancer research. Pelotonia is a three-day experience that includes a weekend of cycling, entertainment, and volunteerism. Through its first ten rides, Pelotonia raised more than $195 million for cancer research. Thanks to its generous funding partners, American Electric Power Foundation, Huntington Bank, L Brands Foundation, Peggy and Richard Santulli,  Harold C. Schott Foundation, Cardinal Health Foundation, Diamond Hill Capital Management, and Nationwide Insurance, Pelotonia is able to direct 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar to cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
