How Cycle for Survival Began

Jennifer and David Linn co-founded Cycle for Survival in 2007 to raise crucial funds for rare cancer research. In 2009, it became an official Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center event, and Equinox became the founding partner. Cycle for Survival is now one of the fastest-growing fundraising events; more than $51 million has been raised to date, directly funding clinical trials and research studies that bring new hope to countless lives touched by rare cancers.

Founders

Jennifer & David

Cycle for Survival would not be possible without our founders, Jennifer Goodman Linn and her husband, Dave. Jennifer, who was first diagnosed with sarcoma in 2004, passed away in 2011, but her indomitable spirit and extraordinary legacy live on through Cycle for Survival.
