Continuing the tradition of charitable giving through teamwork, Talener New York took part in Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Cycle for Survival at Equinox Bryant Park this past weekend. The 18-person team took to the bikes, having raised over $5,000 towards research to battle rare cancers. All proceeds are used for research efforts within 6 months of the Cycle for Survival event, offering an immediate impact on the lives of rare cancer patients and their families. Friday’s event hosted almost 50 participating teams, bringing the total fundraising to over $33 million for 2017.
New York team leader, and one of Talener’s Directors, Kim Siembieda, reflects on her participation in the event:
“Cycle for Survival is an incredibly inspiring event. It is emotional and powerful to hear firsthand stories from Memorial Sloan doctors and rare cancer survivors. Over the past 4 years I have been participating in Cycle for Survival, it is still so motivating to see so many people come together and rally behind such a great cause. To see the event grow over the years, in terms of participants, money raised and locations across the country, gives so much hope to the battle.”
