Friday is a huge day for one of our favorite causes. The great folks at Pedal the Cause work tirelessly year-round raising funds for cancer research, but August 3rd represents one of their major events: their annual “A World Without Cancer Day.” Friday only, all of their restaurant and retail partners, including Kaldi’s, give back a portion of profits toward the cause. In honor of these great partners, we wanted to take a chance to highlight Pedal the Cause and share a bit more about their great work.
PTC was founded in 2010 with the singular mission to funnel 100% of its public donations toward funding world-class cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Their donations are focused on seeding the best new ideas, helping advance critical new treatments that often aren’t receiving sufficient funding to move forward on their own.
Kaldi’s has been involved with PTC since it began, recently participating in annual rides and A World Without Cancer Day each year. Quite a few of our staff are involved throughout the year, and we’re thrilled to see how far the cause has come. In less than 10 years, they have raised almost $20 million toward critical research, helping Siteman continue to lead the way in the ongoing fight against cancer.
Join us this Friday and help us support the cause. All St. Louis Kaldi’s cafes will donate 5% of sales between 6-11:00 a.m, with our roastery matching the donation to make it 10%. Come out, invest in cutting-edge research, and enjoy something from our summer menu before we change it up in just a few weeks. See you Friday!
