Mike Gardner, President and CEO of third-party logistics provider Kane Is Able, Inc. (KANE -- http://www.kaneisable.com) was awarded the 2016 “Fearless Fundraiser” award by Pelotonia, an organization that runs fundraising bike tours to fight cancer. Pelotonia announced the award at the Pelotonia 2016 Check Celebration on Wednesday, November 9th at Express Live, an indoor-outdoor concert venue in downtown Columbus, OH.

Mike’s efforts raised close to $70,000 in funds for cancer research this past year. Susie Pattison, Director of Rider Recruitment and Stewardship for Pelotonia, stated, “Mike set a high bar for all of our other participants! We are so grateful for his enthusiasm for this year’s campaign.”

Pelotonia directs 100 percent of every dollar raised by participants to cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital, and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.

Upon receiving the award, Mike said, “A few years ago, my dad was diagnosed with colon cancer. Through surgery, excellent medical care, prayers, and the support of family and friends, he continues to be in remission. Pelotonia is an amazing experience that combines physical challenge, philanthropy and community involvement. These are central tenets in my own life. I am proud to support one of the premier cancer centers in the country – one mile, and one dollar, at a time. Additionally, I’d like to thank the Kane family and our great KANE associates across the country, who have given generously to this cause.”
