CapRelo and our sister company JK Moving Services once again committed our support to Cycle for Survival, an indoor team cycling fundraising event to beat rare cancers. The fundraising effort supports research for pancreatic, brain, stomach, ovarian, and thyroid cancers; leukemia and lymphoma; all pediatric cancers; and many others.
This is the 11th year for the event. So far, Cycle for Survival has raised more than $140 million to fund innovative clinical trials, research studies, and major research initiatives led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Every dollar raised goes directly to lifesaving research within six months of the event.
CapRelo and JK Moving have each reserved one stationary bike to ride at the event on Friday, March 1st at the Equinox Sports Club in Washington, DC. Each team will be comprised of four to eight members. The event is essentially four back-to-back 50-minute spin classes that the teams ride in relay style. The classes are challenging, high energy, and inspiring. During the relay, survivors, current patients, and doctors speak briefly between each ride.
Below is a great video that gives a sense of what the event day is like and really shows the profound impact Cycle for Survival is making in people’s lives.
As captain of the CapRelo team, I’m looking forward to joining my team of enthusiastic riders and fundraisers for the ride and supporting a worthwhile cause! Please consider joining us in supporting Cycle for Survival by visiting our team page and making a donation.
