Who We Are

Team Buckeye is Ohio State’s superpeloton.

Team Buckeye – Alumni and Friends (that's us!) is one of many pelotons that are affiliated with the university's superpeloton.

We are the alumni and friends of The Ohio State University working together to raise money for life-changing research to end cancer.

We represent the collective power of Buckeye Nation where there is no limit to all that we can accomplish together. We are participating in Pelotonia in honor of those impacted by cancer and to create a better future for all.

In 2023, Pelotonia celebrates 15 years of One Goal, accelerating funding for innovative cancer research, as it hosts its signature series of iconic and impactful cycling, entertainment, and volunteerism experiences. This year’s events include Opening Ceremony (August 4), Ride Weekend (August 5-6), a new Gravel Day event (September 30), and the Impact Celebration in November.

One hundred percent of every participant raised dollar funds innovative cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James). 

We would be honored to have your support. Together we can change the world and end cancer!
