Why should you and your kids JOIN THE BATTLE?  This event raises awareness and funding for rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, through Cycle for Survival and alongside the adult spinning team, Pedaling Sunshine (www.pedalingsunshine.com)  Did you know that rare cancers account for about 50% of all cancers being treated, and that all pediatric cancers are considered rare?  Because rare cancers are so diverse in nature, they are dramatically underfunded, and patients are often left with no treatment options.  This is unacceptable.  

Since kids can’t reach the pedals on a spinning bike, we created this event so that kids could take part in the fight against cancer.  Just like the fundraising for the adult team, Pedaling Sunshine, EVERY DOLLAR raised by the Sunshine Striders will go directly to rare cancer research at MSKCC where doctors are working hard to find cures.  This type of funding is making a real difference in cancer treatments and outcomes across the world.
