Like doing your part to support a good cause? I’ve got a fun challenge for you if you live in the NYC area: Gear up for the first local Ready. Set. Ride!, an Ovarian Cycle event hosted by our favorites over at SoulCycle! Registration is only $40, but you have to raise a minimum of $600 in order to take part in the final ride on April 10th at SoulCycle Tribeca.
If you need a goal this month, make it this one. Ask your friends, family, and co-workers to help you support the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. By donating to the OCRF you’ll be helping thousands of women afford the early detection screening tests that could potentially help them beat this deadly disease. Since symptoms for ovarian cancer are vague and subtle (it’s called “The Silent Killer”), there are sometimes no signs until the cancer has progressed to an advanced stage. Money raised during a charitable ride like this one at SoulCycle will help researchers find a better way to diagnosis this disease, earlier and more efficiently. If you or someone you know has been affected, hop on that two-wheeler and start pedaling away on April 10th! The final ride is 1.5 hours long and will make you fitter, stronger, and most definitely inspired!
