Hello, I have not written in a while because I have been CONSUMED with planning a wonderful charity event to benefit the sarcoma research center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The event will take place on January 28th, 2007 and is called Spin4Survival. As you know, during my 18-month ordeal (multiple surgeries, chemotherapy), I never stopped exercising. It was the one thing that made me feel empowered, alive and willing to keep on fighting against this dreadful disease. In fact, I became a certified spinning instructor during my cancer treatments because I found the cycling program, and so many of the instructors at Equinox Fitness (my gym), so inspiring. It may sound a bit cheesy, but I believe that spinning saved my life. A sport that enables you to compete against yourself and no one else is tremendously inspiring when your body is falling apart inside. There were some days I couldn't spin for more than a few minutes, there were other days when I could spin for two hours and felt great. The truth of the matter is that I fell in love with an activity that enabled me to push myself to the best of my ability every day. Since I became "cancer-free" in February, 2006, I have been focused on developing a charitable event that would be extremely meaningful and personal to me and help me raise much needed money for sarcoma research and I have found it... Spin4 Survival. Please join me on January 28th, 2007 for a day that will surely lift your spirits, raise your heart rate and benefit cancer research. It would mean a great deal for me to have you participate in any way. If you live nearby, you can create or join a cycling team or volunteer for the day of the event. If you live far away, you can support a cyclist or a team by donating to the cause. Please check out and email me with any questions. THANK YOU, Jen
