GLGers Raise Over $17,000 for Cancer Research During Cycle for Survival
March 16, 2016
On Friday, March 11, 2016, twenty-two New York-based GLGers participated in Cycle for Survival at Equinox Graybar. GLG raised a total of $17,075 for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to support the research and development of new drugs and treatments in the fight against rare cancers.
The GLG team split the four hour event into 25- and 50-minute shifts. One rider, Stacy Vigna, was asked to ride the Founder’s Bike in recognition of her personal experience with the cause.
To date, Cycle for Survival has raised $106 million, which has led to more than 100 clinical trials, research studies, and major research initiatives. One-hundred percent of every contribution funds research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering, the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center.
GLG is proud to participate in this event and support Cycle for Survival and Memorial Sloan Kettering.
