Ride Like A Life Depends On It

Today we were part of a life-changing event. We participated in the 4th annual Cycle for Survival, a 4-hour studio cycling event, benefiting the research and treatment of rare cancers through Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center.

Hosted by Equinox Fitness Clubs, over 600 teams gathered to spin their way through the day; sweating, cheering and supporting one another to fight this debilitating disease.

Some rode in memory of a loved one, some rode to celebrate the fact that they could, and some rode to support someone that couldn’t. We all rode as if our lives depended on it, and silently prayed that we would never have to.

Cycle for Survival’s remarkable and intrepid founder, Jennifer Goodman Linn, shared that she recently received the news that her cancer had returned for the 5th time, and would be resuming treatment next week. Her strength and determination is an inspiration to many, and a gift to those who are battling cancer. Our thoughts and prayers are with her as she begins her journey again.

Next week the ride resumes in Chicago, and the fund raising continues throughout the month of February.

Thanks to all of our readers who supported this very special cause. Your generosity is helping to save lives and change the face of cancer treatment.
