This Sunday, I ride in my 6th Cycle For Survival, a national charity event to raise money for rare cancer research that benefits Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. This annual spin event is like nothing else-- it is a moving day of hope (watch the video above to see more) and creates possibilities of living in a world where cancer is a thing of the past. I ride in memory of my father, and for friends that have dealt with this devastating disease.
I adore this charity, and what they have been able to accomplish, raising over $27 million dollars last year alone, is truly awe inspiring. Thanks to the hard work and perseverance of founder Dave Linn, who lost his wife Jen to rare cancer 12 years ago, this organization raises a jaw-dropping amount to fund rare cancer trials. Jen lost her battle to cancer six and a half years ago, but her memory lives on and inspires others. Won't you support me in my ride, and help me reach my goal of raising $12,000 this year?

Each and every one of us has the power to make a difference, so spread the word, join the battle, and let's beat rare cancers!
