Dear Family & Friends:
This year we will be participating this in Cycle for Survival. Cycle for Survival is an indoor cycling event that raises funds for rare cancer research. 100% of the proceeds will go toward Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The event takes place March 3rd, 2013 at Equinox Rockefeller Center in NYC.
We hope that you can join us help fight cancer by donating to the event. Every dollar donated helps fund promising research and clinical trials, which has led to better treatments for cancer patients worldwide.
