This weekend, the city of Columbus celebrated one of its biggest fundraisers of the year - Pelotonia. Participants biked across the state and raised money for cancer research. In total, Pelotonia had 8,022 riders and raised $15,123,317, as of Monday morning. The Columbus Blue Jackets supply avid bikers every year, and this year was no exception.
The Blue Jackets had 15 total riders and raised $11,493. Donations will continue to be collected through early October. Click here to check out the team page. One hundred percent of every dollar raised goes to cancer research.
