St. Louis (KSDK) - A lot of money is now in the hands of the people who can help local cancer patients.

On Thursday night the Pedal the Cause executive director presented a check for more than $2 million to Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Last month more than 1,800 St. Louisans participated in the cycling challenge to raise money for local cancer research.
