When is the last time you sweat for a good cause? Participants at JoyRide Cycling Studio’s Cycle for Survival raised $47,186 for cancer research. The riders saddled up for a grueling ninety-minute spinning class and with each pedal, earned donations from their supporters. The team surpassed last year’s total funds by a whopping $10,000. Every penny raised goes directly to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan, one of the most cutting-edge treatment and research facilities in the country. Rhodie Lorenz, co-owner and lead instructor of JoyRide, lead the spirited, up-tempo class. BMW of Bridgeport sponsored the event and Fairway Market donated snacks for the cyclists, who certainly worked up an appetite.
