COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ODW Logistics, a fast-growing national third-party (3PL) specializing in integrated logistics solutions today announced the company’s support of Pelotonia’s celebration of One Goal. On August 5 and 6, more than 6,500 riders are expected to participate in the celebration of 15 years of One Goal -- raising funding for innovative cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).

“For the past six years, ODW Logistics has supported Pelotonia with inventory management, funding, and the transportation of bicycles for dedicated riders,” said John R. Ness, CEO of ODW Logistics. “It’s been rewarding to provide a helping hand in raising funds for this great cause and donate our time and resources to help manage inventory and the transportation of bicycles.”

One hundred percent of every dollar raised by participants goes towards research at the OSUCCC – James. As a result, the Pelotonia community has helped launch the Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology in 2019 and the new (and first in Central Ohio) Proton Therapy Center. In addition, Pelotonia funds have supported four statewide initiatives in Ohio that promote early detection and better outcomes for patients with colorectal, lung, breast, and endometrial cancers. This year’s fundraising efforts will continue through October 15.

“We are grateful for ODW Logistics’ annual support in helping to manage our incredibly complicated logistics for Pelotonia Ride Weekend,” said Joe Apgar, President of Pelotonia. “The company’s engagement and partnership has helped to create a successful experience for participants and spectators over our 184-mile course. As we move into our 15th Ride Weekend – a momentous milestone for a grassroots organization – we’re grateful for the support from companies such as ODW Logistics.”
