Founded in 2007 by Jennifer Goodman Linn (who passed away in 2011) and her husband, Dave, it is now one of the fastest-growing fundraising events, thanks to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which owns and operates Cycle for Survival, and founding partner Equinox.

Over $60 million has been raised since Cycle for Survival began — and all you have to do is get on a bike for a few minutes.

Rides are held at Equinox locations across the country every February and March, with teams raising money and enjoying an epic indoor cycling class. But don't let that deter you; you can pedal hard or hardly pedal!

4. 100% of every donation is directly allocated to research within six months of the events.

The money goes to pioneering research and clinical trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and have already led to new and better treatments for cancer patients worldwide.
