Some of our Zuri family participated in the MSK Cycle for Survival in New York City this March 2018.
The MSK Cycle for Survival event was founded in 2007 to raise money for rare cancer research. 100% of all money raised at these high-energy indoor team cycling events directly funds lifesaving rare cancer research.
Nationwide, the #CycleforSurvival events raised over $38 million- Patrick Shepherd participated on a team which raised over $10,000 at the event in New York City.
About 50 percent of people with cancer have a rare cancer. Rare cancers include brain, pancreatic, ovarian, stomach, all types of pediatric cancers, and many others. Even though they account for about half of all cancer diagnoses when combined, research on many rare cancers is drastically underfunded, often leaving patients with limited or no treatment options. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center—the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center—is committed to changing that reality. MSK’s close collaboration between doctors and researchers is a unique strength: new drugs and therapies developed in the lab can be moved quickly to patients’ bedsides. – Cycle for Survival
Zuri Group is proud to partner with Memorial Sloan Kettering as a client, and we’re so thrilled that members of our Zuri family were able to help contribute to the wonderful work that MSK is doing to help people beat rare cancer through new and innovative treatment research.
