THE STORY:

NYPEN wrote -

WHAT:

45 minute cycling class at SWERVE Fitness followed by networking and catching up with other participants while refueling on SWERVE Smoothies.

HOW:

Participants will be split into three teams to compete against each other at SWERVE, the world's first team inspired indoor cycling studio. Free classes will be awarded to the winning team.

WHERE:

SWEVE Fitness - 30 W 18th Street, New York, NY 10011

CHARITIES:

All proceeds raised from the initiative will go to support Pin Down Bladder Cancer and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center's (MSKCC) bladder cancer Translational Science Program. The translational science studies focus on the development of early detection strategies to improve more timely diagnosis and a molecular characterization effort designed to identify the critical pathways driving the growth of bladder cancer cells.

Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and fifth most common cancer overall, with an estimated 500,000 people in the US alone currently affected by the disease. Bladder cancer receives 10-20 times less funding than the other most common tumor types. There are 70,000 new cases nationally with 14,000 deaths, and 80% of cases occur in men. It remains the most expensive cancer to treat on a per patient basis today.
