THE STORY:

Join us on Sunday, June 12, 2016 for the first annual Race for ACE fundraiser!  It’s an event that honors the courage, strength and life of Andy Ecker, while raising funds for pediatric cancer.

The event begins at 1pm at Cyc Fitness (4 Astor Place) for two 45-minute spinning sessions where we’ll ride, sweat and cheer each other on.  After, we’ll head to Professor Thoms, a beloved Michigan bar (219 2nd Ave, btwn 13th & 14th streets) for food, drinks, and celebration.

This event is organized by Andy’s family and friends to honor his brave fight against brain cancer, which he sadly lost in July of 2015.  But more broadly, the Race for ACE is about recognizing Andy’s legacy as a passionate Michigan fan, mathematical genius, hardworking employee of Macquarie Capital, winner of every board game ever played, welcoming and loyal friend, loving big brother, amazing son and all around remarkable man.  Please join us in celebrating his life!

Proceeds from this event will go directly to the Making Headway Foundation, an organization dedicated to the care, comfort and cure of children with brain and spinal cord cancers.  Making Headway is unique in that it funds clinical research paving the way for cancer treatments in our future, as well as supportive services that patients need now.  Both are critical elements in our efforts to move the needle on cancer care.  Making Headway specifically provides services to NYU Langone Medical Center’s pediatric center, where Andy was treated.  He was compassionate and playful with the children being treated alongside him at NYU – teaching them games (of course) even during his own struggle.  We know this is a cause he would want us to rally behind.
