Celebrities and athletes across the country will be riding next to the top fundraisers in this year’s Cycle for Survival .
Founded in 2007 by patient Jennifer Goodman Linn, Cycle for Survival is the indoor team cycling fundraiser that has raised more than $4.5 million in support of research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering. Each year, thousands of cyclists team up with friends, family, and coworkers in the ride against cancer in various cities around the world.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic will be supporting the Chicago event on Feb. 5 at Equinox The Loop via social media. Returning to participate at the event will be Bob Love (Former NBA player for the Chicago Bulls).
Seth Meyers will be among the celebrities taking part on Feb. 12 &13 at Equinox 5th Avenue and Equinox Graybar in New York this year. Chris Mullin (Former NBA Star and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist) and John Starks (Former NBA Shooting Guard for the New York Knicks) cycled in last year’s event.
The San Francisco ‘Cycle for Survival’ satellite team is set to relay on Saturday March 5, 2011 at the Equinox Gym from 10am-2pm, where participants will be joined by athletes from the SF 49ers, Oakland Raiders, SF Giants and others.
Jodie Blum, President of Image of Change and partner of the SF event says, “We are thrilled to bring the Cycle for Survival event to the Bay Area in order to support awareness and funding for rare cancer research. This is a community rich in activism and compassion, so we know it will be a huge success!”
