“I became part of that trial thanks to a DNA study funded by Pelotonia… You don’t realize it, but you are saving lives. I know. You saved mine. And for that, I am forever grateful.”

Our Impact

In the first eleven years, the Pelotonia community raised over $207 million for innovative cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center–James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.

Our Impact

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.

Our Impact

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.


The Pelotonia community invests in innovative cancer research, the brightest minds and ideas, and the tools and technology needed to reach our one goal. 100% of every dollar raised is directed to life-saving cancer research at the OSUCCC-James. This is made possible because of the Greatest Team Ever.
