Whether you’ve experienced it firsthand or have witnessed the fight of a family member, friend, or colleague, cancer has made an impact on everyone’s life in some way.
That’s why Recruitics has formed a national team with Cycle for Survival, a fundraising movement to beat rare cancers. Approximately half of all people with cancer are battling a form of rare cancer, but they often have limited or no treatment options because rare cancer research is drastically underfunded.
Cycle for Survival partners with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center – the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center – in a commitment to change that reality. Over the past decade, Cycle for Survival has raised over $229 million, and every single dollar raised is directly allocated to rare cancer research at MSK within 6 months of the close of fundraising. Cycle for Survival funding opens doors for hundreds of MSK physicians, scientists, and research teams pursuing bold new ideas for battling these forms of cancer.
Join The Battle
February 7th marks the first of three Cycle for Survival events that Recruitics will be participating in as a National Team, and we would love your support!
Our three regional teams have a combined fundraising goal of $60,000.
Every dollar counts, and every penny you donate will go to funding rare cancer research. You can learn more and donate to support one of our teams in their Cycle for Survival events using the links below:
