Cycle for Survival
The password for Registration is: UREC
We are taking action against rare cancers by participating in Cycle for Survival.
Cycle for Survival raises money to fund critical research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Participants and donors make progress and hope possible for patients and their loved ones worldwide.
Here are two important facts you should know:
- 100% of every dollar raised will directly fund pioneering research at MSK, helping patients around the world.
- Since its inception, Cycle for Survival has helped fund over 85 clinical trials and studies.
Why do we ride?
We ride to honor brave family and friends touched by cancer. Cycle for Survival is our way of fighting back and making a difference.
We ride because we want to contribute to lifesaving research.
We ride because there aren’t enough treatment options for people with rare cancers—we know we can change that. All pediatric cancers, leukemia, lymphoma, sarcoma, and thyroid, ovarian and pancreatic cancers are among the many types considered to be rare.
How can you help?
Give a gift to our Cycle for Survival ride! Remember, every dollar goes directly to promising cancer research.
Together, we can truly make an impact!
JOIN THE BATTLE.
