The Salk Institute was strongly represented in the first annual Pedal the Cause San Diego—a weekend cycling event that took place October 26 and 27 to benefit San Diego's three cancer centers: the Salk, UC San Diego's Moores Cancer Center and the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute. In addition to helping strengthen the bonds between the cancer centers on the Torrey Pines Mesa, the Salk Cancer Center team raised more than $18,000 for research. The Institute is most grateful to everyone who invested in cancer discovery by sponsoring Team SCC.
