Pelotonia for Cancer Research
A Grassroots Bike Tour With One Goal: End Cancer.
Pelotonia was established with the singular objective to fund life saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center — James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Ranked by U.S. News & World Report, Ohio State is recognized as a leader in cancer care and women's health.
L Brands was one of three major sponsors that each committed $2.5 million over five years to support Pelotonia, and because of these gifts, Pelotonia is able to direct 100 percent of every dollar raised by riders directly to cancer research.
In 2016, more than 10,000 Pelotonia participants representing all 50 states and 60 countries collectively raised more than $24 million for lifesaving cancer research. L Brands was proud to have more than 3,000 associates participate and raise more than $7.5 million toward that effort. To date, L Brands has raised more than $47 million for Pelotonia, an organization that has contributed approximately $130 million directly to cancer research to date.
By getting involved with Pelotonia, L Brands is able to give back in a way that can ultimately benefit our global community by helping to end to cancer as we know it.
