September 26, 2013 at 6:55 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The fastest growing athletic charity in the nation, Cycle for Survival, is gearing up for its annual event.

Cycle for Survival, which was founded by Livingston native, Jennifer Goodman Linn, has raised more than $31 million since its inception and has been responsible for funding more than 80 trials and treatments performed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC).

Registration for this year’s Cycle for Survival is now open for the 2014 campaign.  Interested participants can sign up to ride one of the 3,900 spin bikes available at locations in Summit, New Jersey, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Roslyn, Westport, Boston, Miami, Washington D.C, Dallas, Palo Alto and Seattle.

There will also be a Metropolitan area kick-off event scheduled on Broadway in Time Square on Friday, Sept. 27.  A sea of bikes will ride through the area.  The public is invited and thousands of supporters are expected to come cheer the riders on.

Goodman Linn will be memorialized, along with many other cancer survivors and patients, as  the public is  encouraged  to join the battle against this insidious disease.   

Jennifer Goodman Linn, and her husband, David, founded Cycle for Survival after Jen was diagnosed, at age 33, with a rare sarcoma, for which there is no cure.  

Jen, a graduate of Livingston High School, was validated in many notable ways, for her fearless spirit in the face of adversity.

Since the beginning of Cycle for Survival, Goodman Linn was a guest on several television shows and was the subject of numerous magazine articles.  

She was also inducted into the Livingston High School Hall of Fame and had a research lab dedicated to her at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center which was named “The Jennifer Goodman Linn Laboratory for New Drug Development in Sarcoma and Rare Cancers.”

Goodman Linn was the recipient of the New Jersey Wynona Lipman  Woman of the Year Empowerment Award and was named the Energizer’s  “Keep Going – Bunny of the Year” national winner.

One hundred percent of money raised from Cycle for Survival goes to MSKCC cancer lab research and oncologists share all lab learning with every major cancer hub in the country.

“The Cycle for Survival event is an extremely unique, colorful and inspirational celebration of life,” explained Sandra Goodman, mother of Jennifer Goodman Linn.

“Music, media, prizes, food, entertainment, high profile spinners, doctors, nurses... there are sober stories  and successes shared,” said Goodman. “Support systems are built.   Whether cyclists pedal hard or hardly pedal, this day salutes all those patients and survivors, and their support systems who are fighting all forms of cancer.”

There are 400 bikes available at the Summit location,  on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014 which will be divided into two sessions: morning and afternoon.

To secure a bike spot a team captain must register his or her team name online.  The team members can then reach out to family members, friends, neighbors and colleagues for sponsorship.

Last year Cycle for Survival raised $630,000 in New Jersey with 200 bikes.

People who are not able to attend the event may honor/ memorialize someone by  donating  to Team A:  “A Mission Continued… Jennifer Goodman Linn” by going  to

This all-encompassing theory would tie together general relativity (large scale and high mass galaxies, stars, etc), quantum theory (quantum mechanics, quarks, atoms, subatomic particles), and Newtonian physics (gravity on small bodies, gas laws, electromagnetism) to ...
