Shop & Dine Out to End Cancer on Friday, August 4

On the first Friday of August each year, Pedal the Cause engages a wide array of St. Louis area restaurants and retailers in a one day give back event called A World Without Cancer Day. This year, A World Without Cancer Day falls on Friday, August 4. On this day, 110 St. Louis area restaurants and retailers will donate a portion of their sales to support Pedal the Cause in their efforts to fund innovative cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

“This year, we are thrilled to have the most robust lineup of restaurants and retailers we’ve ever had supporting our mission on A World Without Cancer Day,” said David Drier, executive director of Pedal the Cause. “Cancer research funding is not readily available at the “seed” level, and events like A World Without Cancer Day provide the support we need as an organization to keep raising funds to kick-start these critical projects.

“We thank our restaurant owners and retail partners for their incredible support and all who dine out and shop with them on our quest for a world without cancer.”

“We have participated in A World Without Cancer Day for many years,” said Qui Tran, owner of Mai Lee and Nudo restaurants. “Like too many families, my family has been touched by cancer. Giving back and supporting cancer research is our way of doing something about it. Pedal the Cause is a St. Louis organization that is making real impact in the fight against cancer, and we are very proud to support them.”

At 8 a.m. on August 4, Dr. Kanika Cunningham will appear at Companion in Ladue with Pedal the Cause and beneficiary leadership, and officially declare the day “A World Without Cancer Day” in St. Louis County. Similar declarations will be issued in St. Louis City and St. Charles City.
