Pelotonia Funded Research

Pelotonia, the annual grassroots bicycle tour established in 2009 to raise money for cancer research at the OSUCCC – James, has generated more than $106 million through rider pledges and donations. Thanks to the generous underwriters of the event, every dollar raised by riders since Pelotonia began goes to help our more than 300 researchers translate scientific discoveries to innovative patient care and prevention strategies that contribute to Pelotonia's single goal of ending cancer. The 2016 Pelotonia Investment Report summarizes how Pelotonia funds have been distributed over the event’s first six years.

Pelotonia funds support a variety of projects related to cancer diagnosis, treatment, psychosocial issues and prevention. They also provide a research fellowship program for students, idea grants for teams of faculty researchers, new and upgraded technologies to aid research, and support for work by researchers newly recruited to Ohio State.
