Cycle for survival logo

It’s that time of year again! It’s time to lace up our sneakers, hop on our bikes and start gearing up for Cycle for Survival for the THIRD year in a row, and Amy Stein’s (founder of Beyond Basics Physical Therapy), 6th year! Cycle for Survival is a nationwide event that raises funds to support research for rare and often underfunded cancers. What is really special about Cycle, is that 100% of proceeds are contributed to the research.

We are hoping to raise $4,000 dollars to support this life saving research by taking turns on bikes cycling our hearts out.

Wahooo! Postcard from: Cycle for Survival

By Fiona McMahon, DPT

I am writing you, dear reader, absolutely giddy from Beyond Basics’ day at Cycle for Survival! Cycle for Survival is a fundraising organization that raises money for rare cancer research by hosting one heck of a spin-class party. We biked our hearts out, danced to great music, and were inspired by the stories of people who were affected by cancer.

We were proud to be part of a team that was comprised of our clinic’s staff as well as other members of the community who raised over 47,000 dollars to directly fund rare cancer research. Our team, Team “Fran/Donna” honors all those who have fought cancer or who are currently battling the disease. Cancer unfortunately touches nearly all of our lives and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your donations and support to help make cancer history!

If you still want to make a donation, don’t worry there’s still time! Donations close on April 1st. It would be tremendous to push our total contribution to $50,000.

We had so much fun. We encourage you and your company or family to participate next year. You won’t regret it! Just in case you need any more convincing, below are some pictures from this year’s AWESOME event.

Cycle for Survival: We need your support!

By Fiona McMahon, DPT

Cancer has directly or indirectly touched almost all of us. It has the ability to take from us: our health, our independence, our loved ones, and even our own lives. Cancer can strike throughout the lifespan and inflicts pain on both those suffering from the disease and those who love them. We at Beyond Basics want to support the research to defeat cancer. That’s why the crew at Beyond Basics is lacing up our cycling shoes to raise some serious money for Cycle for Survival.

What is Cycle for Survival? It’s an opportunity to do some good and give back. Cycle for Survival is a phenomenal fundraising organization that raises money to support research to fight rare (and usually underfunded) cancers. Participants raise money by obtaining donations and then going ALL OUT in the cycling studio.

Half of people who are battling cancer are battling a rare form of the disease for which much less is known about how to effectively treat it.  Cycle for Survival has raised 81.3 million dollars to date and 100% of that money has directly contributed to clinical trials and research studies for rare cancers.
