In 2017 a group of Memorial Hospital team members participated in PEDAL the Cause and helped in raising over 4 million in cancer research funds that was utilized by Barnes Jewish Hospital and Children’s Hospital cancer research projects .

The inspiration for our team comes from our employees, patients, and families who have, and continue to battle this terrible disease.  It is with research the key to curing cancer will be found.  Pedal the Cause uses 100% of public donations to fund cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. 


Memorial Hospital has organized a team again for 2019. We would love to have you join our Popeye Pedalers team. You can register or make a donation by clicking on the buttons above.

The Pedal the Cause pre-ride event is September 28th and the ride is September 29th. Lots of good food, beverage and fun for a good cause.


Popeye Pedalers is registered for the 20 mile ride but you are welcome to sign up for more or less miles if you wish. Throughout the Spring and Summer the team will have group fundraisers and split that towards everyone’s fundraising  goal. You can also do individual fund raising towards your own goal. Currently each rider must raise $375  (It will go up to $500 if you don’t meet the minimum $375 goal by July 1).

Group training rides are also planned. Contact to be notified of upcoming training events.
