For over a decade, the Equinox community has rallied for Cycle for Survival. Thanks to the collective efforts of thousands of Equinox members, staff and friends who raised over $34 million together in 2017, as the founding partner we have helped make much of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s lifesaving rare cancer research possible.

There’s more to Cycle for Survival beyond your donation and individual ride. It’s truly a movement, bringing together people across the globe who are united in the battle to beat rare cancers. This diverse community of friends, riders, researchers and supporters fights fearlessly not just on ride day but every day to fund critical research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. With 2018 marking Cycle for Survival’s 12th year, Equinox encourages you to help make this year the most successful yet.

The History

Cycle for Survival was founded in 2007 by Jennifer Goodman Linn, an Equinox member, and her husband Dave. Following Jen’s own rare cancer diagnosis, they wanted to do something to fight back and give back. Despite losing her own battle with cancer in 2011, we continue to be inspired by her passion and determination to make a difference.

In 2007, what started as one small event at one location, Cycle for Survival, which is owned and operated by Memorial Sloan Kettering, has become one of the fastest-growing fundraising events. Over $140 million has been raised to date, directly funding over 100 clinical trials, studies and transformative research initiatives led by MSK that bring new hope to countless lives touched by rare cancers.
