With 100% of every rider-raised dollar going directly to life-saving cancer research

Founded in 2008, Pelotonia was established with the objective to fund life-saving cancer research in Columbus, Ohio. What started as a grassroots bike ride has grown into a movement to end cancer. Our community is made up of thousands of people who have been affected by cancer, but are driven to do something about it.

Pelotonia has raised more than $110 million for cancer research since it was first established. Thanks to its local and generous funding partners, Huntington Bank, L Brands Foundation, Peggy and Richard Santulli, American Electric Power Foundation, Nationwide Insurance, Cardinal Health Foundation, Harold C. Schott Foundation, 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.

As Pelotonia’s movement continues to grow nationwide, Columbus will always be our home. All are invited to join the Pelotonia community as a Rider, Virtual Rider, Volunteer or Donor. Learn more at
