Have you ever done a workout that gives back? They are so much fun! Get fit while you make a positive impact – it doesn’t get any sweeter than that.
This past weekend I joined EQUINOX and some of my #fitfam to teach for and participate in Cycle For Survival in San Francisco. It was my 7th year teaching for this incredible cause that raises money for rare cancers through a fun indoor cycling class. Did you know that 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.
But the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center—the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center—is committed to changing that reality. And thanks to events like Cycle For Survival, have been able to make a POWERFUL impact in the fight against rare cancers. Thanks to the tremendous efforts of participants, donors, and supporters, Cycle for Survival has raised $126 million for rare cancer research, and funded 100+ clinical trials and research studies.
Teaching at Cycle for Survival means more to me every year. I am honored to have been able to teach for this very special cause and inspired by EVERYONE who continues to cycle, sweat, support, and give back. We will keep cycling till we find a cure. You can join the battle with us here: Http://
I wanted to share my teaching playlist from my hour of the ride. I mixed it up this year and put together a flavorful combination of 90’s throwbacks and feel good songs that make you smile while you sweat. The theme for my ride was: “Ride for the joy of moving. Ride for the joy of living. Ride for the joy of loving.”
And we did just that on February 11th in SF. We rode with heart and so much LOVE. Thank you for having me San Francisco!! You were awesome out there! I hope this playlist lifts you up and reminds you to move for the joy of it in your life.
