My name is Cheryl Beneduce Bock. On April 2, 1999, I had a life changing, terrifying experience when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Within seven days I had a lumpectomy, and began a long arduous year of chemo and radiation. My story isn’t that different than thousands of others.
Regardless of the pain and sickness, I consider myself to be extremely lucky. My experience has taught me one thing, perspective. Every day I carry in my heart, the family and friends whom I have lost or who I know are going through some sort of treatment.
My life changed again when my mother, my best friend, my teacher, my breath, was taken from me. Cancer had won. I cannot bring back my mother, she will remain in my life and heart forever. I can no longer stand by and watch as others continue to be ravaged by this disease.
Through all of this I have found my purpose in life. I am here to mobilize people who believe we can beat this disease by combining my passion with fitness and spinning to raise money for cancer research.
We each have one life to live; together we can make a difference. Please support Pedal for a Cure.

My name is Gloria Long and my story begins when I was 24 with the devastating loss of my beloved mother to breast cancer. Back then, the diagnosis of breast cancer was a lonely one, people were afraid to discuss it and very little information was available to understand the disease. I was devastated to think that for the rest of my life I would not have this gentle soul to share laughter, tears and my life stories with.
Her loss instantly shaped me as a person and made me stronger and compassionate to help anyone that has to go through the struggle of this horrible disease. Over the years I have had to face the death of many friends and loved ones from cancer and this emotional devastation has fueled my passion to do something positive to bring awareness, and raise money to help find a cure.
I met Cheryl in 2000 through our shared love of horses and found out that she was a survivor, these two things has bonded us for life. Her positive spirit and passion fueled the process for us to combine our energies and do something good. We are proud to be the creators of Pedal for a Cure, a cancer fundraising non-profit that is dedicated to raising funds to support cancer research.
Join us in our journey to empower others to get involved and to help bring awareness to all cancers.
