We’re thrilled to be partnering with Cycle for Survival to enable you to join a team of IVY members to participate in an incredible movement to beat rare cancer through high-energy indoor team cycling events. Each IVY chapter will put together teams of 4 – 8 IVY members to cycle in shifts during this 4-hour event, while competing against other IVY chapters nationally to raise the most money for this great cause. The best part? — 100% of all money raised directly funds lifesaving rare cancer research.
Rare cancer patients make up about half of all people fighting cancer, but they often have limited or no treatment options because rare cancer research is drastically underfunded. In 2019, Cycle for Survival raised $42 million and has donated more than $221 million in over the last decade. Every single dollar is directly allocated to rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the close of fundraising.
