St. Louis (KSDK)-Hundreds celebrated St. Louis' version of the Yellow Jersey awards on Saturday.

Pedal the Cause riders who raised more than $2,500 for cancer research received yellow jerseys, just like Tour De France Winners.

Our own Leisa Zigman, a cancer survivor and Pedal the Cause ambassador, received her jersey with 138 other riders.

Last year the event raised more than two million dollars with 100 percent of the money staying in St. Louis to fund new treatments and cures for all cancers at Washington University, St. Louis Children's Hospital and Siteman Cancer Center.

At the event, Leisa shared she will have her last chemo treatment this Monday.

She has been battling lymphoma for the past 2 ½ years. Her doctors say, she is in complete remission.
