Turner Cyclists from Wexner Medical Center Expansion Project Raise Six Figures for Cancer Research for the Fourth Year Running

August 21, 2013

August 21, 2013 – Turner’s 46 member Peloton joined more than 6,700 riders who took to the scenic Ohio highways – pedaling distances of up to 180 miles in continued support to cure cancer. Since Pelotonia’s 2009 inaugural event more than $650,000 has been raised by Turner’s project team on The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Expansion Project.

Pelotonia brings together a community of people, many who are cancer survivors, to celebrate life and participate in the tireless effort to cure cancer. To date Pelotonia has raised $55 million, with 100% of the rider donations dedicated to fund cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital, and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. 

"Pelotonia is very grateful to have partnerships and the support of companies like Turner Construction Company,” said Tom Lennox, CEO of Pelotonia. “Together, with our relentless spirit and commitment, we have incredible potential going forward.”

“Both our Turner employees and all of our subcontractor employees are optimistic that they are building the facility that will someday find the cure for this terrible disease,” said Kyle Rooney, general manager for Turner’s Columbus office. He continued, “We are proud to be building the state of the art facility, as well as supporting the fundraising efforts needed to support its research:”

Turner is building the University’s 1.5 million square foot medical facility for the Diagnostic/Treatment and Inpatient Cancer and Critical Care services. The new 21-story James Cancer Hospital, Solove Research Institute, and Critical Care Center project is the cornerstone of the comprehensive Wexner Medical Center Expansion Project.
