Port Washington residents Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio, Betty Ann Caravella, Josie Bishop and Sam DeMarino did their part to help fight cancer by participating in the Cycle for Survival fundraiser on Saturday at Equinox Fitness Club in Roslyn.
Cycle for Survival is the annual, indoor relay-style team cycling event at Equinox Fitness Clubs and satellite locations worldwide that funds research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. In the past five years, Cycle has raised more than $9 million and directly funded 25 clinical trials and research studies.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, based in New York City, is the nation's preeminent center for research and treatment devoted exclusively to cancer. The innovation and discoveries made by MSKCC benefit the cancer community around the world.
Every dollar raised by Cycle for Survival goes directly to MSKCC for research on rare cancers and provides new treatment options and renewed hope to countless lives touched by rare cancers.
