THE STORY:

WHAT: Join us on Sunday, June 4, 2017 for the second 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. We had an amazing turnout last year and raised over $100,000, and look forward to an even better turnout this year! 

WHERE: This year we will be spinning at Flywheel, Astor Place (51 Astor Place - corner of 3rd Ave and E. 8th Street/St. Marks) starting at 1:30 pm. Afterwards, starting at 3:00pm, we’ll head to B Bar and Grill (40 E. 4th Street - Corner of 4th Street and Bowery) for food, drinks, and celebration. 

HOW: To secure a bike, please click  "Race / Fundraise" above.  We are asking participants to raise a minimum of $250. There are 130 spots available in the two classes, so start fundraising now if you want a chance to spin! If you would like to participate or join us at the bar, but do not plan to ride, we encourage you to contribute to an individual biker’s fundraising page, or to the group. Click on the "Donate" above to contribute to an indvidual's fundraiser page, or make a donation to the general donation page. 

WHY: 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! 

WHO: 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. For more information on the Making Headway Foundation, please visit their website here: www.makingheadway.org
