Our Founders

Our Founders

Cycle for Survival was founded by Jennifer Goodman Linn—a Memorial Sloan Kettering patient and Equinox member—and her husband, Dave.

Following Jen’s own rare cancer diagnosis, they wanted to do something to fight back. Jen sparked this movement and, despite losing her own battle with cancer in 2011, we continue to be inspired by her passion and determination to make a difference.

Jen's Story


Take A Moment To Dance


Jen's Bike

At all of our events across the country, we have a special bike that we established in Jen's honor. Cancer survivors and caregivers take turns riding "Jen's Bike”—pushing the Cycle for Survival movement forward, one pedal at a time.

In 2012, shortly after her passing, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center dedicated a lab in Jen's name. MSK wanted to give Jen and all who loved her this high honor, recognizing her incredible advancement of rare cancer research.
