Pablove Across America began in 2009 when Jeff Castelaz rode from St. Pertersburg, FL to Los Angeles, CA in memory of his son, Pablo, who lost his battle with cancer at age 6. The Pablove Foundation was created in Pablo’s honor to invest in underfunded pediatric cancer research, inspire cancer families through education, and improve the lives of children living with cancer through the arts. Pablove Across America riders have raised over $2 million for The Pablove Foundation, with riders having logged over 8,000 miles nationwide.
This October, forty cyclists will ride from Los Angeles, CA to San Francisco, CA October 5th through October 11th for the seventh annual Pablove Across America to raise money and awareness for the fight against Childhood Cancer. The ride is set to begin at The Trails Café in Los Angeles with a public send off. The 500 mile ride (with a stop in Cambria!) is led by Jeff Castelaz and it funds The Pablove Foundation’s essential programs such as childhood cancer research grants, annual educational symposiums, and Pablove Shutterbugs, a photography program for children living with cancer.
