They say this is a very admirable cause, however, research dollars also go to pay extremely high salaries for administrators (700K for OSU medical administrators overseeing the budget and Pelatonia) Every year they say it's going to end cancer but in reality, it's an ongoing research process that will never end. How about diabetes, arthritis, mental illness issues. Why do only the elite, that can afford a $2500 fee (taken from your credit card if pledges don't come through ) get to ride. This is another elitist money making scam and they feel so much better about themselves when they taught their accomplishments . And why ride to southern ohio where the economy has sank and they have over 20% unemployment. We seen what happened when a poor guy from Athens county couldn't maintain his brakes but fixed them enough to get by and support his family due to his economic situation.
The compassionate OSU supporters wanted this guy crucified. Love the double standards.

Cancer is terrible and so is diabetes, arthritis, and heart failure. Where's the big OSU benefits for our family members. 3500.00 on a credit card to get rid of diabetes (bigger killer than cancer).

The salary of administration does not come from Pelotonia, they were making those salaries long before this race was started. And not only the elite ride, college students, cancer survivors, etc all ride in the event together. Yes, the "admission" could be an issue, but I see more of the James doctors not meeting their donation goals over the staff (nursing, patient care, etc) and cancer survivors.

Your comments are simple minded and irrelevant.

You ramble about the (elite, diabetes, southern ohio, a guy who was driving without brakes and without insurance, and the economy).. all in 8 sentences...if you are going to post.. put some cohesive thought into it...

It's quite a challenge to ride this distance.
Definitely it requires a good training and preparation.

Really. Simple put, you must be one of the intellectual elitist who know better than the rest (must be an open minded liberalist who counts sentences-good for you). Well, explain your rationalization the next time you see a ride for diabetes that cost someone $2500.00 to enter. Can't do this because the majority of people with diabetes are African American or low income Appalachian families who can't afford to ride in your ride. They choose to earn money for their family funerals or to sustain children that have lost parents. Glad your focus is in one area that happens to be on your own agenda.

Your right this is a cruel game they are playing. It's all about money. They will never have a cure in conventional medicine, there is no money in a cure, but there is alot of money in maintaining disease. People need to pull themselves from conventional medicine and learn what cancer really is and how to treat(and heal) the body not poison it more (the conventional way).

Yo, 10TV -- quit referring to it as a race. It is not, nor has it ever been a race.

This might be the dumbest, most ignorant post yet.

"They" don't say each year that it's going to end cancer. They say each year it is the goal of the effort to end cancer - there is no end date. The goal is to do it as long as necessary, raising more and more money, until that happens.

You think this is an elitist event? Hardly! Look at the HUGE OSU student peloton. Those kids aren't exactly loaded, but they find creative ways to raise money. So do the people like the woman who was tragically killed last year. I don't think she was living high on the hog at all, yet she put a lot of effort into raising money to get it done. And THAT'S why I respect and admire this event. They are serious about raising money to fight cancer and want people who have that passion as well. That's why I rode in 2009 and 2010. And as a side note, I'm hardly an elitist either.

Also, what does riding into southern Ohio have to do with anything? Those people line the streets as riders go past, cheering them on. They show their gratitude and are often living examples of how far cancer detection and treatment have come.

Drop you inane conspiracy theories and start doing something to HELP. Let me guess, you think 9/11 was an inside job?

Good grief. Why even bother posting if you are just going to make stuff up?

Diabetes a bigger killer than cancer? Do us all a favor and come back after you educate yourself. Then we can have a discussion.
Do a little research
