JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
Hello Family and Friends and welcome to 2019! I hope you all had a wonderful and safe 2018!
2019 marks my NINTH year riding strong as a Spinderella for Cycle for Survival (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!) For those of you who aren't familiar, Cycle For Survival is a team-based cycling fundraiser benefiting rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Each team has a fundraising goal to reserve a bike for a 4-hour spin event (ouch) taking place on February 9th at Equinox SF. 100% of every dollar we raise goes directly to research efforts at MSK. Last year our team OF 6 GALS raised over $100,000 with a lifetime achievement of $342,000!
Why I ride… (for those of you who know me well)
It’s personal and I'm super passionate about it- I ride for my mom, for my family and friends who have experienced loss (sadly, even on our team), and for the hope that we can put an end to this, especially for children.
Rare cancer research is underfunded, but we can change that. Cycle for Survival supporters like us have helped fund over one hundred clinical trials and studies, leading to new discoveries that are helping patients today. (With survival stories I have seen with my own eyes)
Day of the ride....which is the best day EVER...
My favorite part of the day is looking around (jumping and dancing in a sea of bikes and orange pom poms) and seeing all of the strength and positivity in each participant’s eyes. Being on that bike makes me feel like I'm making a difference in someone’s life. There were stories shared last year that brought the room to tears. It is truly an emotional experience I can't begin to describe. Come see for yourself if you can!
I can't begin to express the gratitude that I have for all of the support you've given over the years! Last year you all blew me away! Last year I raised an additional $10K for most number of donations on the West Coast, help me get there again!
Thanks to you we have raised millions towards rare cancer research and have saved lives.
50% of People with Cancer Have a Rare Cancer
When combined, about half of all patients fighting cancer are fighting a rare cancer. These are cancers we know — such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid, ovarian, brain, pancreatic, and all pediatric cancers — yet research is largely underfunded.
100% Goes to Lifesaving Research Led by MSK
Every dollar you give will advance innovative studies and clinical trials led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Discoveries made by MSK revolutionize how cancer is diagnosed and treated, helping patients across the country and around the world.
6 Months for Fast Impact
Not only does every dollar go to research, your gift will be in the hands of doctors and researchers within six months of the events. As a donor, you will learn about the projects supported and the breakthroughs made.
Thank you for your support!
