COLUMBUS—State Representative Jim Hughes (R-Upper Arlington) has introduced legislation that would create a license plate highlighting Pelotonia.


Since its founding in 2008, Pelotonia has raised more than $130 million for cancer research through its charitable events, which features three days of cycling, entertainment and volunteerism. Every dollar raised goes toward some form of cancer research at The Ohio State University’s James Cancer Hospital.


“The great work that Pelotonia does in funding life-saving cancer research speaks for itself,” said Rep. Hughes. “The creation of the Pelotonia license plate will give supporters of cancer research an easy way to contribute to the worthwhile cause of ending this terrible disease, which has touched all of our lives in some way.”


House Bill 313 expands the ability for supporters of Pelotonia to contribute $15 to cancer research through the purchase of the license plate.


“The Pelotonia community is passionate about the work we do, together, to fund research and save lives,” said Miguel Perez, Pelotonia’s Vice President of Mission & Brand. “We know that the more people we connect with, the stronger we are and the faster we will reach our one goal. We are excited to reach even more people, through the Pelotonia license plates, and have them join our movement to end cancer.”


House Bill 313 awaits assignment to a House committee and further deliberation.
