JoyRide Cycling Studio Hosts Satellite Team for Cycle For Survival
Monday, February 06, 2012
This Saturday, JoyRide Cycling Studio is organizing and hosting a Satellite Team for Cycle For Survival, the national, indoor cycling event that raises crucial funds for lifesaving research on rare cancers.
JoyRide’s fundraiser is one of 30-plus satellite teams to participate, in addition to the main events in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Long Island. The 90-minute ride will be led by Rhodie Lorenz, co-owner and lead instructor of JoyRide Cycling Studio, with special live guitar accompaniment by Scott Williams of Fairfield. Westport’s Jerri Graham, the founder of Nothin’ But, will cater a healthy brunch for participants to refuel after the ride.

Cycle for Survival has raised almost $11 million in less than five years and has directly funded 25 clinical trials and research studies, bringing hope to countless lives worldwide touched by rare cancers. This year’s event promises to be the biggest to date, with more than 10,000 cyclers from across the United States teaming up to ride, raise money and have an immediate impact on cancer research.
Since Cycle for Survival became an official fundraiser for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in 2009, it has doubled in size and money raised in each successive year, making it one of the fastest growing fundraising events in the world. One hundred percent of the funds are allocated to the most promising research and clinical trials at MSKCC within six months after the event.
