GREENWICH, Conn. — Cycle for Survival , an indoor cycling event to support rare cancer research and clinical trials, will be held at Equinox in Greenwich on Sunday, Feb. 12.
The ride begins at 8 a.m. at Equinox, which is located at 16 Old Track Road in Greenwich.
The fifth annual ride will support research and trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), which owns and operates Cycle for Survival. The rides will be led by instructors from Equinox and sessions are scheduled throughout the day.
Special guests, rare cancer survivors, patients, caregivers, MSK doctors, Equinox instructors and other members of this community will join the ride. Participants can expect heart-pumping music, dancing, personal stories of hope and remembrance, and uplifting remarks from researchers about discoveries made possible by Cycle for Survival.
Rides will take place in 15 additional cities across the country in February and March, uniting more than 31,000 participants and 200,000 donors.
About half of all cancer patients are fighting a rare cancer, which includes thyroid, brain, ovarian, pancreatic, all pediatric cancers and many others. Cycle for Survival has raised more than $115 million for research since its founding in 2007, making it the fastest-growing athletic fundraising event in the country, according to Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum.
