About Cycle for Survival

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 at 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.

Get Involved

Cycle for Survival unites families, friends, and colleagues in the fight against rare cancers. Register to ride at one of our signature events, no training necessary! If you can’t join us at an event, we encourage you to participate virtually, create your own fundraiser or start a fundraising page to fund research.

Our Founders

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 her legacy continues to inspire us to ensure better outcomes for everyone with cancer.
