A Litte About Pelotonia

Pelotonia started as an idea. A ride. A weekend. To make a difference. To make an impact.
But we know, Pelotonia was never just about the Ride. It’s always been about setting and achieving an ambitious goal, and raising critical funds to fight a disease that impacts us all. And that’s exactly what we’ll do again this year. And the year after that.

Pelotonia is embarking on its 13th year. The organization blew past all initial goals and forecasts in the first year and hasn’t looked back since. At the time of recording, $223 Million has been raised for cancer research. In this episode, we find out, in Joe’s own words, what makes Pelotonia unique.
