Team raises funds for cancer research

The local Scripps Ranch community at Fitness Quest 10 participated in the annual Padres Pedal the Cause challenge on March 18 at Petco Park.

Thanks to the Fitness Quest 10 team and team captain Jeff Bristol, the team raised $71,000 with 76 team members.

Todd Durkin kicked off the race as the event keynote speaker, inspiring participants to help fight cancer.

Padres Pedal the Cause is Curebound’s largest signature event, bringing together thousands of participants each year to raise money for collaborative cancer research. Hosted in partnership with the San Diego Padres, “Pedal” is an impactful fundraising experience with more than $18 million raised to date to fund 80+ innovative research grants in all types of cancer. One hundred percent of every dollar raised funds life-saving cancer collaborative research among San Diego’s top research institutions: UC San Diego Health, Rady Children’s Hospital, Salk Institute, Sanford Burnham Prebys, Scripps Research and La Jolla Institute of Immunology.
