Fundraising Goal
Donor List


Riding for Cycle for Survival has become a passion for many of us. Who has not known someone with cancer? And 50% of cancers are classified as "Rare Cancers". As I heard a doctor as MSKCC once say at a Cycle event, a rare cancer is rare until someone you know has one. Unfortunately, many of us know the truth in that. 

I became a passionate supporter several years ago while attending an MSKCC presentation in NYC. In a video presentation I watched, a doctor said the worst thing for a physcition to have to say to a patient is that there is no treatment. That struck a deep chord with me. Though I did not act on it right away it stayed with me for a couple of years. As a breast cancer survivor by God's grace there is much funding thankfully, because of the 1 in 8 frequency of occurence. But it's a different story for the many rare cancers so I finally decided to take the plunge and form a team in 2016.

In every year our team has ridden we have known someone very close who has had a rare cancer. Some won their battle, others did not. But we are determined to keep fiercely fighting this battle through our effiorts and that of our donor supporters. And that is why we ride because "If We Don't Do It Who Will?" 

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!
