Celebrating 15 Years of Cycle for Survival and Announcing Upcoming Events at MSK


Every day, your commitment to funding life-changing cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering is ensuring a brighter future for people with cancer around the world. Thank you for your continued support.

Cycle for Survival: Celebrating 15 Years

On May 1 and 2, 2021, Cycle for Survival riders traveled to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey to raise money for rare cancer research led by MSK. It was Cycle for Survival’s first-ever socially distanced outdoor ride, but just like every year, 100% of the $25 million raised goes directly to fuel bold ideas and breakthrough treatments for people everywhere with cancer.

The entire Cycle for Survival community was also invited to take part in the Virtual Event Experience a few weeks later on May 15. The day kicked off with the Impact Celebration, during which participants heard testimonials from doctors, scientists, patients, and caregivers about their experiences with cancer and their hopes for the future. Equinox, Cycle for Survival’s founding partner, offered classes via the Equinox+ app so people from across the country could join in on virtual cycling and noncycling fundraising activities.

Cycle for Survival is the movement to beat rare cancers. Since 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised more than $282 million to bring new and better treatment options to people with cancer around the world.
