Mission Essential Announces 4X Increase in Donation to Cancer Research, Supports Recovering Veterans

COLUMBUS, OH – Mission Essential today announced a nearly four-fold increase in this year’s contribution to Pelotonia, the annual bike ride that sponsors life-saving cancer research. The Mission Essential Peloton raised over $121,000 for this, the Company’s signature charitable event.  Mission Essential has sponsored a Peloton since 2011, and this year its Peloton was comprised of 29 riders, 11 of which were cyclist-veterans from Ride 2 Recovery, a non-profit organization that supports cycling as a means to improve the health and wellness of injured veterans.

“Words can’t really capture how proud I am of our team,” said Mission Essential CEO, Peter Horvath. “Everyone with Mission Essential, whether they rode, fundraised, or cheered, is very proud of this accomplishment.”
