Tyler Polumbus, former Denver Bronco and co-host of “The Drive” on Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan rode 100 miles on Saturday at Empower Field at Mile High raising $35,000 for Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance. Tyler took on this challenge for his mother Nancy who passed away in April after a 6 year battle with stage 4 Ovarian Cancer and he wanted to bring awareness to others so others would not suffer like she did. Ovarian cancer is deadly and many women don’t know they have it until it’s advanced and difficult to treat. Tyler’s mother wasn’t any different. She had no idea she wasn’t healthy until her stomach became bloated and she gained about 15 pounds in a very short period.
After watching his mom battle with ovarian cancer, Tyler wanted to bring awareness to other families so they would not have to watch their mothers, wives, sisters or daughters go through the same experience. So, combining his love of bike riding and the Broncos he decided to create “Pedal with Polumbus” to BEAT Ovarian Cancer. In memory of his mom, Tyler rode 100 miles around Empower Field at Mile High on Saturday, September 19, 2020, to raise funds for the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA).
About the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance: The mission of the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA) is to provide support to those affected by ovarian cancer, and to promote awareness and early detection of ovarian cancer through advocacy and education. There is NO TEST for ovarian cancer, so symptom recognition and risk factor knowledge is key to an early diagnosis.
