Cycle Against Cancer, New York Sports Clubs West Hartford

In March 2017, the CT Sports Foundation began a new initiative to expand the Cycle Against Cancer to multiple locations!  We kicked off our effort with four gyms hosting the event in seven days! On March 18, Iron House Fitness in Old Saybrook and New York Sports Club in West Hartford held the Cycle Against Cancer from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm.  Led by an experienced and enthusiastic Steering Committee, Iron House Fitness raised over $61,000 to help cancer patients in CT! Our Iron House Ambassador, Chloe, was there and had a ball playing with 2015 Ambassador, Liv.

On the same day, first time Cycle Against Cancer host New York Sports Club raised almost $18,000 – a great result for their first year!  The NYSC Ambassador, 12 year-old Allison, stopped by with her mom to greet the riders – when she entered the room, everybody cheered!

The very next day, Zen and Now Wellness Center in Niantic stepped up to the plate, hosting their second Cycle Against Cancer and raising over $27,000!  The Ambassador for this CAC was four-year old Molly, whose story was especially powerful since her mom, Ashley, is also fighting cancer. Molly and her little friends had a blast dancing to the music while the group spun their hearts out.

On Saturday, March 25, it was UP Fitness’s turn.  UP Fitness was another newbie to the Cycle Against Cancer, but they came roaring into the event, raising close to $30,000 for cancer patients in CT, especially the Ambassador, Marik, who is battling bone cancer for the second time.  Kelli Tucker, Marik’s mom, gave an emotional thank you that was both heartwarming and touching.

At every location, the Cycle Against Cancer was uplifting and inspiring.  Together, these four events raised over $135,000 for cancer patients in CT!  We are deeply grateful to everyone who participated in the Cycle Against Cancer events – the CT Sports Foundation has a small staff and we could not do the work that we do and help as many patients as we help without people like you!

We would especially like to thank our gym hosts, Steering Committees, and top fundraisers for their commitment to this cause!
