About Cycle for Survival
Cycle for Survival is the national, high energy indoor team cycling event that is owned and operated by Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). Together with its founding partner, Equinox, Cycle for Survival raises money to fund research into rare cancers.
Half of all people diagnosed with cancer suffer from a “rare” form of the disease, which includes such well-known types as pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, stomach cancer, and all pediatric cancers. Research into rare cancers is often underfunded, which means patients may have few treatment options.
Cycle for Survival was co-founded in 2007 by MSKCC patient Jennifer Goodman Linn and her husband, Dave Linn, to raise crucial funds for rare cancer research. Sadly, Jennifer passed away in 2011. Jen’s legacy lives on through Cycle for Survival which continues to expand at record pace, propelled forward by thousands of cyclers who have joined the fight to beat rare cancers.
Cycle for Survival has raised more than $28 million for rare cancer research at MSKCC, funding 53 clinical trials and research studies since 2007!
