More of Pablove Foundation.
Castelaz co-founded the Pablove Foundation in May 2008 with his former wife and Pablo’s mom Jo Ann Thrailkill, who is chief executive at the Pablove Foundation.
The Pablove Foundation has given away nearly $3 million to support cancer research, often allocated in $50,000 seed grants to cutting edge scientists and researchers.
“We kind of operate like an indie label,” said Castelaz, who founded Dangerbird Records in 2004 and spent several years running Elektra before exiting in 2015 to focus full time on management and the Pablove Foundation. “We’re putting up small grants for new innovative science and funding young researchers.
We’re acting the way Dangerbird used to when we would sign a band like Silversun Pickups or Fitz and the Tantrums, building a business out of a band that nobody else would think about. With the Pablove Foundation, we’re funding researchers that other people just aren’t looking at.
And we’ve had a number of researchers go on to get published, which is a big deal, and a number of researchers that have gone on to secure funding from large foundations and government agencies like the National Institutes of Health, and that’s a direct result of this bike ride.
The Pablove Foundation utilizes a scientific advisory board comprised of oncologists and researchers that make recommendations to the foundation’s board of directors on which projects should receive funding.
Money raised from the ride also goes to the Pablove Shutterbugs, which teaches the art of photography to kids that have cancer. Each biker participating in the ride is tasked with raising a set amount for the charity, funded by individual donations to sponsored riders.
