The nationwide indoor team cycling event is driving much needed research into rare cancers, including pancreatic cancer, brain cancer and pediatric cancers, led by Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (link: Teams register to ride for a four-hour shift, with a maximum of 8 riders per bike.

It is a bittersweet year. The event founder, Jennifer Goodman Linn, died last July at age 40.

One young girl who got help at Memorial Sloan-Kettering is Emma Krzak, who was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare eye cancer, when she was just about five weeks old. Emma, her father, Michael, and Jennifer Hogg from Equinox Fitness, joined us in our ABC7 studio to talk about "Cycle for Survival."
