BERNARDSVILLE NJ - The Team Campbell Foundation participated in Cycle for Survival on February 6, 2016 at Equinox in Summit, New Jersey to raise money towards Childhood Cancer Research.
Cycle for Survival is a national movement to beat rare cancers. The high-energy indoor team cycling events held in locations across the United States raise funds for rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to this research. Team Campbell Foundation has formed teams in Paramus, NJ and Chicago, Illinois to raise additional funds over the coming weeks. This year, the funds donated by Team Campbell will be earmarked specifically for pediatric cancer research.
Though this is the third year that Team Campbell has participated in Cycle for Survival, it is the first year that the money raised by the team could go specifically to pediatric cancer research. Robin Hoyt, founder of Team Campbell Foundation and team leader noted, “Cam’s amazing group of doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City turned over every rock, explored every possible option and collaborated with doctors around the world searching for a cure for Campbell. It is this kind of collaboration that will find a cure and save thousands of children diagnosed with cancer.”
Team Campbell Foundation was formed in late 2014 in memory of Campbell Grace Hoyt who lost her five year battle with Ependymoma, a cancer of the brain and spine, at the age of 8 in August, 2014. The mission of the Team Campbell Foundation is to improve the lives of families fighting childhood cancer by raising awareness, funding research and providing psychosocial enrichment opportunities.
