Cycle for Survival, A cancer charity event for Memorial Sloan Kettering

For the past two years Tim Alan Smith's NYC corporate video company- Avenue 5 Films- has filmed the charity event "Cycle for Survival" at various Equinox Gyms in Manhattan and Long Island. The event is a fantastic fundraiser to help cure rare cancers in which people create teams of spinners to raise money to fight cancer through Memorial Sloan-Kettering. Here is an excerpt from the website about what it's all about and why you should consider signing up for the 2013 event!

2011 Cycle for Survival, the fastest growing national, indoor relay-style team cycling event in support of rare cancer research. "Co-founded in 2007 by Jennifer Goodman Linn and her husband, Dave, Cycle for Survival is the national, indoor relay-style team cycling event that has raised more than $9 million in support of lifesaving research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and in the past five years has funded twenty-five clinical trials and research studies.

Cycle creates an opportunity for each of us to truly make a difference — every dollar raised by Cycle goes directly to Memorial Sloan-Kettering for research on rare cancers, paving the way for new, more effective treatment options.

Cycle is one of the world's fastest-growing athletic fundraising events. Cycle 2012 will be the biggest ride to date with over 10,000 cyclers from across the country teaming up with friends, family and coworkers in New York City, Chicago, Long Island, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, DC and at satellite events worldwide!

Join the movement that brings hope to lives touched by rare cancers. Register or join a team today or make a gift to Cycle. No one beats cancer until we all beat cancer. Together, we can make a difference!"
