Pelotonia 2011: Raising Money to End Cancer



It’s about that time of year again – Pelotonia 2011 takes place in just over a month! One of the largest cycling events in the region, Pelotonia was started in 2008 with one goal: to end cancer. 100% of funds raised by riders go directly to OSU’s James Cancer Hospital and the Solove Research Institute. Last year, over 4,000 riders raised $7.8 million dollars!

At Buckeye Honda/Nissan, we’ve been involved in Pelotonia and events like the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer for several years now. Many of our families have been personally affected by cancer, and we found that community events like these are a great way to help ensure that top-flight facilities like the James Cancer Hospital are able to continue their innovative cancer research.

Last year, we provided several Nissan Cubes and Honda Crosstours as support vehicles to provide assistance if riders had a mechanical breakdown or injury – and we plan on doing the same thing this year. At our Buckeye Hondaand Buckeye Nissan dealerships, we’re running our Pay It Forward campaign: When you visit the service department and make a small donation to Pelotonia, we’ll give you a voucher good towards your next service visit, up to $10.

Several of our staff members at Buckeye Cars are avid cyclists, so we formed the team: Jeff Morris, Matt and Kelsey Sigmon, Scott and Tammy Thomas, Kent Delong and Dale Stein. Visit to learn more about Team We love seeing our friends, family and neighbors come together to help the community, and the drive to end cancer is one of the most important causes that we can think of. We look forward to seeing you at Pelotonia this year. Thank you for your continued support and generous donations!
