The Event: Cycle for Survival is an indoor team cycling relay in NYC and cities around the country on SundayÂ Jan 31, which isÂ the Sunday before the Super Bowl when nothing else is typically going on. Last yearâ€™s Cycle for Survival raised more than $1.2 million for cancer research. Â Â People “share” an indoor cycling bike for 4 hours and raise money for a great cause. Â We get the best cycling instructors in NY to motivate people but you don’t need to have ever gotten on a bike before to have a great time and make a difference. There are activities for the whole family to enjoy.

The Cause: 100% of the funds raised through Cycle for Survival go directly towards clinical trials and research studies at one of the world’s leading institutions for cancer care – Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.Â The research will particularly focus on less common cancers that donâ€™t get the funding that they desperately require. These cancers alone don’t get much attention but when you group them together, they affect millions of people annually. To date, we have funded over 8 trials that have impacted brain, pancreative, soft-tissue, lymphoma and certain forms of pediatric cancer.
Jenâ€™s Story: At the age of 33, Jen Goodman Linn was diagnosed with sarcoma, a rare form of cancer.Â Over the last 5 years, she has endured 4 major surgeries and more than 26 months of chemotherapy.Â Even while facing these challenges, Jen created Cycle for Survival to help the millions of people impacted by cancer.Â Â Jen has been cancer-free for the past 5 months since her most recent surgery, but she is always worried that her cancer will return for a fifth time and is therefore committed to finding more treatment options for her and her fellow cancer patients.
