Padres Pedal the Cause on April 7th at Petco Park

| March 31, 2024 | 0 Comments

Curebound, a San Diego-based philanthropic organization that raises and invests strategic funding in translational cancer research projects, will host its annual signature event, in partnership with the San Diego Padres, Padres Pedal the Cause, on Sunday, April 7th at Petco Park. The community is invited to come together in the fight against cancer by raising awareness and funds for innovative cancer research in San Diego. Now more than ten years strong and over $21 million raised, Padres Pedal the Cause brings the community together with one vision: a world without cancer.

The event combines upbeat spinning, cycling, and running/walking courses with many opportunities to get involved and participate:

  • Participants can select from one of three cycling courses (25, 40, 55, or 75 miles), all of which will take riders over the beautiful Coronado Bridge.
  • Participants will also have the option to run or walk a scenic 5K course in downtown San Diego that finishes at Petco Park.
  • Participants can take a 50-minute spin class all day long at Petco Park.

New for 2024! Rocky Road: All new 40-mile gravel hybrid course. Take this challenge with your current road bike (minimum tire width 35mm) or on a mountain bike for better handling.

Families and friends are encouraged to take a first step toward ending cancer as part of this inspiring community challenge. 100 percent of every dollar raised from this event funds collaborative cancer research between Curebound’s six institutional research partners: Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Salk Institute, Sanford Burnham Prebys, Rady Children’s Hospital, La Jolla Institute for Immunology, and Scripps Research.

Registration is open for all forms of participation at
