Who: Tyler Polumbus, member of the Super Bowl 50 champion Denver Broncos and co-host of The Drive on 104.3 The Fan lost his mother, Nancy, in April 2020 after a six-year battle with ovarian cancer. He decided to put his new-found passion for bike riding to use and created Pedal with Polumbus to BEAT Ovarian Cancer. His goal is to raise awareness of the symptoms so that others don’t lose their mothers, wives, sisters or daughters. Many of the riders and donors who take part in the event have been directly impacted by ovarian cancer. After witnessing the hope and healing that participants derive from Pedal with Polumbus, Safeway signed on as the presenting sponsor. The ten cyclists who will ride with Tyler each donated a minimum of $1,500. The additional 65 cyclists participating in the event donated between $250 and $1,500. During the first two years of the event, Pedal with Polumbus raised nearly $200,000 for the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
Why: To provide awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer, which is the fifth most common cancer among females in the U.S. and the deadliest gynecologic cancer.
There is no screening test for ovarian cancer; therefore, it is critical to raise awareness about the disease’s symptoms and the importance of seeing a physician if the symptoms continue for more than a few weeks. The beneficiary of this event is the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA), which promotes awareness and early detection of ovarian cancer through advocacy and education while providing support to people affected by ovarian cancer.
