WESTPORT, Conn. JoyRide Cycling Studio in Westport will be spinning its wheels this Saturday during Cycle For Survival, a national indoor cycling fundraiser that benefits rare cancer research.
The JoyRide team, led by studio co-owner and lead instructor Rhodie Lorenz, will be one of 30-plus satellite teams participating in Saturdays event, in addition to the main events in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Long Island.
JoyRide is excited to participate in this important and inspirational fundraising event and bring awareness to the research of rare cancers, Westport resident and studio co-owner Amy Hochhauser said.
All proceeds from the event are donated to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for research and clinical trials on rare cancers. More than half of all cancers are classified as rare, including all pediatric cancers.
Westport resident Aimee Rein and Ashleigh Myer of Stamford are co-leading the Westport satellite team.
I cycle in memory of Jenn Goodman Linn, who inspired me and countless others with her unstoppable energy and fearless philosophy throughout her seven-year battle with a soft-tissue cancer called sarcoma, said Rein. I cycle to keep her legacy alive and continue her extraordinary vision and mission. I cycle with dedication to honor the brave people I know and love who are battling cancer.
The 90-minute event will kick off at 11 a.m. at the JoyRide studio, 1200 Post Road E., behind Crate & Barrel. To participate in the ride, register online . For more information or to donate, contact Aimee Rein at firstname.lastname@example.org .
