Cycle For Survival 2013: Exercise Your Charity Muscle!

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a “rare cancer” is one with a prevalence of fewer than 200,000 affected individuals in the United States. Many rare cancers are drastically underfunded, leaving patients with limited treatment options. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the nation’s preeminent center for research and treatment, is committed to changing that. And they have invited us ALL to join the battle and make a difference in the fight against rare cancer.

Cycle for Survival is the indoor team cycling event that raises funds for rare cancer research. Co-founded in 2007 by Jennifer Goodman Linn and her husband, Dave, Cycle for Survival has raised more than 22.4 million dollars for rare cancer research and has funded 53 clinical trials and research studies. Cycle’s direct funding has drastically reduced the time it takes for treatments to reach patients — in some cases cutting the span from years to months.

Cycle creates an opportunity for each of us to truly make a difference — 100% of the funds go directly to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and are allocated within six months of each event. The donations help fund the most promising research and clinical trials, and have led to better treatments for cancer patients worldwide.

Join the movement that brings hope to lives touched by rare cancers.  You can help by making a gift to my Cycle for Survival ride! You will have an immediate impact on those fighting cancer. THIS IS A FIGHT WE NEED TO WIN, because no one beats cancer until WE ALL BEAT CANCER. Together, we can truly make a difference.
