What started as a quest to raise $100,000 for breast cancer research has been embraced by the central Ohio Community so much that more than $15.4 million has been raised to support vital breast cancer research and patient assistance. The Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research is devoted to advancing research in breast cancer. Over the past few years, the Fund has supported researchers and their efforts.

“With each year, each month, and each day there are new breakthroughs and possibilities in the fight against cancer.” Those were my wife, Stefanie’s words and they have given me the strength and determination to carry on her dream of ending the terrible disease. I am grateful to each and every one of you for joining me in the continuing Stefanie’s legacy of hope. I am thrilled to announce that Spielman Fund reached $15.4 million in 2014.

The model of Pelotonia remains simple: Pelotonia’s operating expenses are covered by funding partners so that 100% of every dollar raised by Pelotonia riders, virtual riders and volunteers goes directly to fund cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. Pelotonia was initially funded with a five-year, $12.5 million commitment, with a goal to raise $39 million during this time period.
Stefanie’s Team of Hope is a community of people who have joined together to celebrate the life of Stefanie Spielman and to carry on her legacy of hope.
