Renewing Our Support for Pancreatic Cancer Research

In 2011 we got behind Glotman Simpson Cycling, an organization that strives to raise funds and awareness towards Pancreatic Cancer research.  They do this by riding their bikes, a lot.  In fact, at the end of last year there were 200 members in the Club and both a Men’s and Women’s race team.  So you can only imagine the kinds of distance they recorded, all the while spreading the word.

As the Club grew, so did the administrative effort in keeping everyone happy and organized.  Enter, Event Wizard®.  As a member of Glotman Simpson Cycling myself I recognized the need for a registration system and the organization of the database that comes with it.  So, I brought it to our team and with overwhelming support we decided to sponsor Glotman Simpson Cycling and all of their online registration needs.  This proved to be an invaluable component in the Club’s registration process for uses like membership registration, spin class registration, surveys, skills sessions and more.  Knowing these tasks were taken care of meant administrative time was opened up to focus on raising funds and awareness towards this very aggressive form of cancer.

In 2011 Glotman Simpson Cycling and it’s members raised a staggering $125,000 towards Pancreatic Cancer research!  While this figure is impressive, it’s only a start.  That’s why we decided to renew our support for the Club in 2012, so they can continue their quest to raise funds and awareness without the burden of organizing the Club’s registration and payment needs.
