24-hour virtual pedal-a-thon benefitting pediatric cancer research through The Callahan Murphy Hare Foundation.
Join us virtually via Peloton, Echelon, Nordic track, stationary bike or road bike (or anything else with wheels!) as Callahan’s mom, Kate, rides for 24-hours on her Peloton!
Ride will be live streamed, so please make sure to check in to cheer her on, and join the FB or IG lives for a chance to win some trivia prizes throughout the ride. (live link will be posted before the event).
Every dollar raised from this event will be donated to pediatric cancer research!
Date: 9:00a - 9:00a Dec 3rd - 4th
Ways to participate: Ride, sponsor the pedal-a-thon and/or shop the holiday raffle.
A $30 registration commits you to virtually join the 24-hr pedal-a-thon for a 30-min (or longer**) ride however you choose (e-bike, road bike, whatever you have with wheels). You can ride anytime during the 24-hours. If you Peloton, add #pedalforpediatrics to your leaderboard during your ride. Our pedal-a-thoner, Kate, will share her planned stacks the CMHF Facebook and Instagram pages so participants can ride alongside her, if they choose.
If you're riding any other way, snap a picture and share it with us including #pedalforpediatrics
**You can also choose to ride a longer distance and time commitment. Additionally, all riders will be able to fundraise for their rides. All fundraising for an individual's specific ride within this event is the individual participant's responsibility to promote. Fundraising incentives include a refunded registration fee when you raise a minimum of $150.
Registration (for all ride lengths) also gives you 2 entries to the holiday gifting raffle (details below).
A wonderful holiday gift raffle will be live beginning Friday, 11.18. As part of your registration (for either ride option) you will receive two (2) entries into the raffle. All registered participants will receive an email on 11.18 with the link to the raffle to indicate which gift(s) you would like your entries submitted.
Access raffle here.
Gift values range from $200 - $450. Any additional desired raffle entries beyond the two with your registration will follow raffle pricing. We will begin previewing the holiday gifts the week of 11.7 on the CMHF social accounts (@thecmhfdn). Shipping is available on noted packages.
Winners will be pulled during the last hour of the ride (8:00a - 9:00a on 12.4). Local deliveries and shipping will occur on Monday, Dec. 5 and Tuesday, Dec. 6 in plenty of time for the December holidays.
Donations to "sponsor" the 24-hour feat are welcome through this event or through the Facebook event page. Thank you in advance for your support and encouragement!
We hope this is a fun, easy event to close out the year for The Callahan Murphy Hare Foundation fundraising efforts. Let's raise some awareness about pediatric cancers and the need for more research - and get some exercise and holiday gifts checked off our lists, too!
About The Callahan Murphy Hare Foundation
Kate and Matt Hare established The Callahan Murphy Hare Foundation in September 2021, following the April birth of their son Callahan, who was diagnosed with infant leukemia within hours of birth. Due to the aggressive protocol he needed, Callahan (and mom and dad) stayed inpatient at Nationwide Children's in Columbus, OH for the first 8 months of his life.
During this time, the Hare's became immersed in the pediatric cancer world – a place no one imagines finding themselves. As they learned more about their son's diagnosis, along with the cancers of other pediatric patients they met during their stay, and the federal investment priority (or lack there of) for pediatric cancers, Kate and Matt were motivated to be a part of the movement to support and change the funding for pediatric cancers. Did you know, the National Cancer Institute's annual budget accounts just 4% to pediatric cancers? This is why #MORETHANFOUR is a rallying cry within the pediatric cancer community.
Since launching in September 2021, The Hare's have raised ~$100,000 for pediatric cancer research at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Boston Children's in Boston, MA. Funds raised through events like this one are intended to help fund innovative research and trials at children's hospital's across the country. The foundation is disease state agnostic, meaning they are not focused solely on funding research related to Callahan's diagnosis of infant leukemia.
