Pedal with Pete Foundation
The Pedal with Pete Foundation’s community of volunteers work to raise funds for cerebral palsy (CP) research through events that include bike rides and walks, and through other fundraising. Established by Pete Zeidner, who had CP, in Kent, Ohio, these events have spread to Columbus, Ohio and Emmetsburg, Iowa, and we seek to start events elsewhere. With the funds raised, grants of approximately $50,000 per year are awarded to two research projects to further their work developing prevention, treatments, and cures for CP. Pedal with Pete is internationally recognized as a discerning, consistent funder of seed grants for CP research.
