About 550 people gathered yesterday at Equinox in Greenwich, 16 Old Track Road, Greenwich, for the second annual Cycle for Survival, a high-energy indoor team cycling event that raises money for rare cancer research.

Former American tennis pro James Blake also rode in the event. In total, 100% of every donation goes to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and is allocated to pioneering rare cancer clinical trials and research studies within six months of the events.

Instructors from Cycle for Survival’s founding partner, Equinox, lead participants in this family-friendly event that is committed to making more treatment options available to help patients and their families by helping fill the funding gap.

Cycle for Survival is one of the fastest-growing athletic fundraisers. Since 2007, the movement has raised over $47 million to fund 85 clinical trials and research studies. This year more than 16,000 riders will participate in events in 13 cities nationwide.

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center, has devoted more than 125 years to exceptional patient care, innovative research, and outstanding educational programs. Today, they are one of 41 National Cancer Institute–designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, with state-of-the-art science flourishing side by side with clinical studies and treatment.

The close collaboration between physicians and scientists is one of the Center’s unique strengths, enabling us to provide patients with the best care available as Sloan Kettering works to discover more-effective strategies to prevent, control, and ultimately cure cancer in the future.

The education programs train future physicians and scientists, and the knowledge and experience they gain at Memorial Sloan Kettering has an impact on cancer treatment and biomedical research around the world.
