WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport's JoyRide Cycling Studio is set to host a fundraiser to fight Ovarian and Breast Cancer this weekend. 

The third annual Kickin' Cancer! Ride & Family Fun Day will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, May 18 at JoyRide Cycling Studio at 1200 Post Road E. in Westport. The indoor cycling fundraiser will benefit the Lynne Cohen Foundation.

Over the past two years, riders and supporters have raised nearly $70,000 for women and families bravely facing breast cancer and ovarian cancer, according to a press release. 

"Kickin’ Cancer! is open to all JoyRiders and members of the community to help make a difference in the fight against women’s cancers," representatives said. "Riders can register for the first hour, second hour or both hours as an individual participant, a team leader or as a member of an existing team to raise funds and raise awareness for the cause. One can also make a donation to support an individual participant, a team or the general event fund."

Each rider will receive a tank top (women) or dri-fit T-shirt (men); for an additional $30 donation, women will also receive a pair of Limited Edition Kickin’ Cancer! tights by Split59, according to the release. 

"I am so proud of how this event has grown over the past three years and touched so many people -- from the families who participate in the Ride and our generous supporters, to the women who directly benefit from our efforts in this community and around the country,” said Erin Berk, who co-founded LCF with her sisters in memory of her mother Lynne Cohen.

“JoyRide is honored to once again host this important and inspirational fundraising event and bring awareness to the research of women’s cancers,” said Debbie Katz, co-owner of JoyRide. “We look forward to another day of inspiration, perspiration and fun.”
