On Sunday, February 8th, a small but determined team from our Lexington office joined hundreds of others at Equinox Fitness Club in Boston, Massachusetts to Cycle for Survival and raise money to fight rare cancer. This is the third year in a row Cimpress has assembled an indoor cycling team for the event.
Cycle for Survival is the national movement to beat rare cancers. The high energy indoor cycling events provide a tangible way for participants to fight back with 100% of all the money raised directly funds lifesaving rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) within six months of the event. The donations go to pioneering research and clinical trials, and have already led to new and better treatments for cancer patients worldwide. Thanks to the generous support of family, friends and co-workers, we raised $8,400. The energy and enthusiasm in the cycling room at 8:00 am that Sunday morning is indescribable. There was dancing, cheering, and singing to music that was louder than you’d find in most night clubs. Wearing pom-poms and neon sunglasses on bikes was encouraged. There were also awe-inspiring and emotional stories of survival motivating us to cycle on.
