Donations for Cancer Research

Third Sun is proud to be a supporter of this year’s Pelotonia and the fundraising team of Bo’s Tire Barn, whose four riders raised $10,000 last year in support of the cancer research taking place here in Central Ohio at the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.  Last year, the two-day 180-mile cycling fundraiser raised over $4.5 MN dollars.  The 2010 six-rider team has set, and is fast achieving its goal, of $30,000!

We wholeheartedly support the mission of the Pelotonia and are excited to be a part of the effort to raise funds for this cause.  Like so many, we too have lost loved-ones to this dreaded disease, but we also are grateful for the family and friends that have won their battles with cancer with the help of institutions like the James and Solove.

As a growing business in Central Ohio, we also recognize that support of Pelotonia benefits our customers, our community and the Third Sun family, so we are proud to do our part.

We hope you will join us in supporting the fundraising riders of Bo’s.  They are a diligent and committed fundraising team and promotional partner.  They are doing some pretty tough training so as to be  – as they put it – “worthy of their donors’ support.”

Pelotonia 2010 and Third Sun Solar – raising funds to end cancer!

There was never any question about the team riding the Pelotonia again. We want to do all we can to keep raising funds to support cancer research. The only question was “How could we raise more for the cause?” Last year, the four of us scrambled to meet our team goal of $10,000 on the last day of fund raising. It was a lot of work (harder than the pedaling), but it was worth it. We received a tremendous amount of support from over 120 donors and we were (and are) extremely grateful. With Pelotonia expanding, we knew some of our donors might have to split their contributions amongst more than one rider, so we also knew we had to do more than train hard to be worthy of your continued support.

Well… we are excited to announce that this year your contributions for cancer research will be 30% more powerful, thanks to a 30% match by our corporate sponsor – Third Sun Solar, the Midwest’s preeminent solar power installers. In addition to Third Sun’s support of Bo’s efforts, Third Sun will be a partner to the Pelotonia by supplying solar-generated electric power to the kick-off and finish lines.
We are honored by the opportunity to represent Third Sun and we are proud to be helping the company accelerate the shift to clean energy by spreading the word about the compelling commercial and residential ROI for solar power in Ohio. The company is a natural fit for this event and we hope that in return for their generous support of cancer research, we can provide important exposure for the company and its mission. So, please be sure to check-out their web site www.third-sun.com to learn more about this surprisingly viable source of renewable energy, whose time has come.
This year, Bo’s peloton will be six strong:
Brendan Flaherty – our Captain and 2009 Bo’s top fundraiser
Shawn McGrath – Corporate Sponsorship Officer
Dave Bowers – Chief Pilot
Scott Siebenaler – Team Nutritionist and TOSRV Participant
Megan – Team Food Taster & Fashion Designer
Kristin – Head of Security
On a final note…One of our teammates lost his father this spring. Al Siebenhaler was 81 and survived a serious brush with cancer in the 1980’s. A bittersweet reminder of what this event is all about.
