About Cycle for Survival
Cycle for Survival accelerates progress in rare cancer research, bringing new and better treatment options to people around the world.
Cycle for Survival Is the Movement to Beat Rare Cancers
100% of every dollar supports pioneering research and lifesaving clinical trials led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), the world’s oldest and largest private institution dedicated to revolutionizing our understanding and treatment of cancer. Within six months after the close of fundraising each year, the money raised by Cycle for Survival riders and donors goes directly to MSK doctors and scientists, fueling bold ideas and breakthroughs.
Join the Battle
Cycle for Survival unites families, friends, and colleagues in the fight against rare cancers. Over 37,000 people ride in our signature indoor team cycling events — no training necessary! If you can’t join us at an event, we encourage you to create your own fundraiser or start a fundraising page to fund research.
Cycle for Survival was started in 2007 by Jennifer Goodman Linn — an MSK sarcoma patient and Equinox member — and her husband, Dave Linn. Jen sparked this movement, and despite losing her battle with a rare cancer, she inspires us to ensure better outcomes for everyone with cancer through her passion and fearless determination to make a difference.
