American Cancer Society endurance fund-raiser on tap March 3

Indoor cycling event renamed ‘Pedal to End Cancer’


For immediate release

Friday, February 15, 2013

The American Cancer Society’s Spin for Hope, a three-hour indoor cycling fund-raising event, has a new name - Pedal to End Cancer. 

The event is scheduled Sunday, March 3 at participating health clubs throughout New England. 

Locally, the event will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at:

CycleINPlace, 274 South Main Street Newtown, CT 06470  www.cycleinplace.com

Since Pedal to End Cancer started in New England in 2005, more than $2.2 million has been raised for the fight against cancer.  What started with six clubs raising $100,000 grew to more than 60 clubs, raising nearly $400,000 in 2012. 

The new name is the only major change to the event for 2013. As in years past, the funds raised will support the life-saving mission of the American Cancer Society.

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.4 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
