David Linn, co-founder of Cycle for Survival, the national, high-energy indoor team cycling event that is owned and operated by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, will visit the New York Stock Exchange and ring The Opening Bell® to highlight Cycle for Survival’s 2014 season. The season began on February 1 and will continue through March 2, with rides schedules in 13 U.S. cities.
Cycle for Survival
Join the Battle. Cycle for Survival is a national, high-energy indoor team cycling event that raises critical funds to beat rare cancers. Together with the event's founding partner, Equinox, more than $40 million has been raised since 2007 to fund 85 clinical trials and research studies at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which owns and operates Cycle for Survival. Half of all cancer patients are fighting a rare cancer, and they often face limited or no treatment options. Through these empowering and fun events, Cycle for Survival is committed to making more treatment options available to help patients and their families. 100% of every donation is allocated to pioneering research within six months of the events, which gives Cycle for Survival participants and supporters an opportunity to make a powerful and direct impact.
