LEANDER, Texas — A Leander home donated $150,000 of its sale profit to Pelotonia, a cancer research nonprofit that hosts an Ohio cycling benefit event.

The home, located in the Lost Woods Preserve housing development, is one of 14 from builder M/I Homes to donate to Pelotonia. The other homes are located in Columbus, Chicago, Orlando, San Antonio, Raleigh and other U.S. cities.

Pelotonia's annual, three-day cycling event taking place this weekend donates all of its earnings to cancer research. According to its website, Pelotonia has accumulated $236 million in year-round fundraising since its founding in 2008.

Pelotonia also has its own institute, called the Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology.
