About 550 people gathered on Sunday at Equinox for Greenwich’s second annual Cycle for Survival, the indoor team cycling event that raises money for rare cancer research.
Former tennis pro James Blake also rode in the event where 100 percent of every donation benefits 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 Equinox, Cycle for Survival’s founding partner, were the lead participants in the 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 more than $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.
