It was a record breaking year for the GCG Hardly Riders who have just completed their 4th year riding in Cycle for Survival. Cycle for Survival is a national movement to beat rare cancer. In partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Equinox, this high-energy indoor team cycling event raises money to fund innovative, lifesaving rare cancer research.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is one of the oldest and largest private cancer centers. This center has devoted over 130 years to caring for its patients and raising the cancer-care standards. The fight is against rare cancers, and approximately 50% of people battling cancer, are battling rare cancer.
Cycle for Survival is an annual event in which teams gather and ride stationary bikes in order to raise money for the battle against rare cancer. GCG helped the cause as the team came in as the top fundraising team in Chicago’s event. 2015’s rides raised a total of $29,263,737.00, providing some much needed relief for those battling cancer.
