Respected Columbus, OH dentist, Dr. Jon Runion, recently participated in the three-day Pelotonia® cycling experience, dedicated to funding life-saving cancer research. Dr. Runion’s passion for proper health runs through everything he does, both in his hobbies and in his work. Dr. Runion’s practice, Runion Dental Group, focuses on full-body wellness, emphasizing to patients that poor oral health can have long term effects on the body’s overall health, such as leading to diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
Pelotonia has raised $15.4 million for cancer research this year alone, and $199.3 million in total since its conception in 2008. 100 percent of every dollar raised for Pelotonia goes directly to funding cancer research. Pelotonia works hand in hand with the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James), a 21-story, 306-bed cancer hospital. OSUCCC – James brings doctors and researchers close together to work towards a cure and provides patients with innovative, science-based treatments.
Pelotonia riders can choose from multiple routes with varying distances, from 25 to 100 miles. This was Dr. Runion’s second year participating in the 100-mile Pelotonia bike ride. His route began in Columbus, OH and traveled to Gambier, OH. “While I am so proud to have finished the ride,” Dr. Runion explains, “I know the real work doesn’t stop until we reach our goal to find a cure for cancer.”
