On Wednesday, September 27, Jeannie and Jonathan Lavine were invited to take part in the Cycle for Survival Times Square Takeover. High-energy cycling rides were led by instructors from Equinox on more than 100 stationary bikes in the heart of Times Square to celebrate the national launch of registration and fundraising for 2018.
Nearly 1,000 supporters took part in the event, including rare cancer survivors, patients, caregivers, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center doctors, and special guests.
2018 will be Cycle for Survival's 12th year and will see national indoor cycling events taking place in 16 cities throughout January, February, and March.
Bain Capital has a long history of supporting Cycle for Survival and their fight to beat rare cancers. Since 2013, more than 150 employees from Bain Capital have participated in a Cycle for Survival event and have collectively raised more than $3M. We are excited to kick-off 2018 and look forward to seeing you there!
About Cycle for Survival
Cycle for Survival is the movement to beat rare cancers. Since 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised $140million through its signature indoor team cycling events across the United States to help fund pioneering rare cancer research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which owns and operates Cycle for Survival. 100 percent of every donation funds rare cancer research. About half of all cancer patients are fighting a rare cancer, and they often face limited or no treatment options. Together with the movement's founding partner, Equinox, Cycle for Survival has supported innovative clinical trials, research studies and major scientific initiatives.
