The 2nd Annual Spin4Survival is a Smashing Success!

January 27th was an outstanding day! All in all the 2nd annual Spin4Survival raised over $640,000 for cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. We had over 120 teams involved from around the world! Over 500 people "geared up to battle cancer" at Equinox Columubus Circle in an 8 hour bonanza of sweat. People had such a great time and everyone left feeling so inspired. Here are a few quotes to give you a sense of how magical the day was:

"I Just wanted to say congratulations again on such a fantastic event - fun, inspirational and incredibly well-organized! When you were speaking and presenting MSKCC with the (unbelievable!!) check, it all really hit me. And I was not the only teary-eyed one in the audience. I feel honored to have been a part of it, and I am already training for next year."

"I can honestly say that I do not know a single person who would not be thrilled and honored to partake in next year's spin4survival."

"Unimaginable inspiration paired with uncontrollable perspiration"

"What a great day we all had on Sunday. Everyone is raving about S4S- you made a truly miraculous event come together. It was a blast and a huge success on so many levels. The positive energy was deliciously palpable - we are already training for next year"

"Seeing the time, commitment, enjoyment, and most of all THE ENERGY the spinners, and volunteers put into this great day uplifted the spirits not only of the members, but the staff as well. What a terrific cause for raising money, and awareness to fight this terrible disease!"

"Not only was I inspired by the day but I really felt that I personally made a difference in the lives of cancer patients at MSKCC. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to make a difference"

Dave and I are THRILLED that the event was such a success. THANK YOU to every person who participated in any way. It is amazing to realize that each and everyone of us has the ability to make a difference in the world. Stay tuned for more pictures and stories! Dave and I are off for a much-needed week of R&R; in Puerto Rico. I plan on finding a nice chaise lounge at the pool and not moving for the entire 7 days!
