11th Annual Cycle for Survival to be Held Saturday; Nearly $11.5 Million Already Raised


SUMMIT, NJ — Only days before the 11th-annual Cycle for Survival event at the Summit Equinox, the Goodman family announced on Monday that $11,450,017 has already been raised toward rare-cancer research and that Cycle for Survival is well on its way to surpassing last year’s record of $30.5 million by April.

Started by Livingston native Jennifer Goodman Linn, who lost her battle to cancer only a few years after the event was conceived, Cycle for Survival contributes 100 percent of every dollar raised directly toward lab research for rare cancers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. On Saturday, the Summit Equinox located at 68 River Road will once again host one of Cycle for Survival’s daylong indoor-cycling fundraisers.

“Saturday will be the most incredible, high energy Cycle for Survival celebration of life ever,” said Sandy Goodman, Jennifer’s mother. “So many spirited surprises.”

Last year, Sandy and her husband, Len, said their daughter made sure the organization was not all about her, but about all of the people who are suffering like she was. They said the fundraiser is less about writing a check and more about letting cancer patients and survivors know that they are not fighting alone.

Jennifer’s husband, David Linn, said that one of the most satisfying parts of the event each year is seeing it bring people together.

“It started with Jen and I, but what’s amazing is that so many people are riding for their own Jen in their lives,” David said at the 10th-anniversary event. “In many ways Cycle for Survival captures her spirit: the feeling of hope that she had no matter what she was going through. What they’ve done is infused that spirit of Jen and brought it to life through Cycle for Survival.”

Cycle for Survival currently has anchor events in 16 cities, including 17 events just in New York City. This year, Huntington Beach, CA and Washington, DC were added to the mix.

Valyrian Steel: Where is it All? Should We Still Care?

There is a glaring hole in recent Game of Thrones seasons that needs to be addressed: the ability of Valyrian steel to destroy White Walkers has not been acknowledged since before Jon Snow’s death.

In fact, it hasn’t been mentioned since the Season Five finale when Jon Snow reveals this discovery to Sam Tarly. Jon has cared about little more than the war between the living and ...
