TeamCOPC is a group of physicians, employees and friends of Central Ohio Primary Care dedicated to fighting cancer by volunteering or riding in Pelotonia. Since 2010, teamCOPC has raised over $2.1 million for cancer research!


From our beginner educational sessions to our fundraising events to our weekly group training rides, teamCOPC is a team first, and nobody is alone on this team!

Better than we could alone...

The true core tenet of the Pelotonia community. We will always accomplish more as a group than we could individually.


The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, with support from Pelotonia, has already made many advances in prevention, early detection and cures. Pelotonia is successfully changing and saving lives!

teamCOPC 2023 is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Lee Budin

Lee Budin was a co-founder of teamCOPC. He was a leader, a visionary and a dear friend to many of us. In 2020, Lee was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and despite a tough fight for nearly 2 years, he passed away in October, 2022. 

We will miss Lee's smile and laughter, his leadership, and his commitment to bettering those around him. 

We will continue to ride in his memory, and we have dedicated our efforts this year in Lee's honor. 

One Goal
