Follow our Facebook Group for information on upcoming fundraisers and events.

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 2020. 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 26th and the ride is September 27th. 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.

Cancelled Events

  • Popeye Pedalers 2nd Annual Perryville Ride scheduled for September 13th has been cancelled.

  • Pedal the Cause ride scheduled for September 27th.

The safety of our participants is, as always, our top priority. With that in mind, we have determined it is not safe to have in-person events this year.

"The Pedal the Cause staff and board of directors have weighed all the options, and it was an incredibly difficult decision to make. Based on the recommendations by the CDC and knowing that so many in our Pedal family are immune compromised, we know we are making the right call. Taking our event virtual now allows us to dedicate the next 4 months to raising as much money for cancer research as possible, and we hope you will join us on this path."

We still encourage any donations to the cause help us find a cure for cancer.
