OSU Knox County Pelotonia

Pelotonia 2017 was a huge success!  The weather could not have been more perfect. The staff, the riders and the volunteers were elated at the end of the weekend by what was accomplished for cancer research. After participating in Pelotonia, you leave with a renewed hope that someday we can end cancer.  Pelotonia 2017 has raised  $15,897,442 to date.

3 members of the Knox County OSU Alumni Club volunteered at the food and beverage tent at Kenyon College.  It was where all the action was after the riders made it to Gambier. The caterers did an amazing job serving food for over 6 hours.  We stayed very busy and enjoyed the interactions with the riders and their families.
