It’s time to register for the 7th Annual Cycle for the Cure, a 2-hour, heart-pumping indoor cycling event and festive fundraiser benefiting TGen’s cancer research. Hosted on Sunday, May 7, 2017, at all four Valley locations of The Village Health Clubs & Spas in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Chandler. Plus, the 2017 Cycle for the Cure also includes yoga and fitness classes for a donation (Camelback and DC Ranch locations only). To sign up, register at your local Village location or visit www.tgenfoundation.org/cycle.
Using genomic sequencing, TGen helps doctors match the appropriate therapy to each patient’s DNA profile, producing the greatest patient benefit. This year, Cycle for the Cure is focused on raising research funds for work on a revolutionary diagnostic method called “liquid biopsies” – biomarkers in circulating blood – as a means of providing patients and their doctors with early detection of disease.
Dr. Jeffrey Trent, TGen President and Research Director, will be among TGen’s renowned scientists participating in Cycle for the Cure. “Funds raised by Cycle for the Cure remain in Arizona for TGen research. Local research means local patients benefit first,” said Robyn DeBell, one of the event’s co-chairs. “Being involved in TGen is like having a sneak peek at the future of medicine.”
“To join, register for the ride at your local Village location, or sign up for a virtual ride, which is doing any activity on your own, while raising money for cancer research. This year, the top fundraiser will win a Grand Prize trip to the Paris finish of the 2017 Tour de France. Contest rules are available at www.tgenfoundation.org/cycle. As you pedal with others, you’ll be inspired and energized by your shared mission to fund groundbreaking research with life changing results, and knowing that 100 percent of funds raised by participants supports cancer research in Phoenix. And you won’t want to miss the Post-Ride Party because there is nothing like a big “cool down” after a hard ride! This celebration, hosted by Camelback Village, will feature cool refreshments, small bites, beer, wine and a return performance by Nate Nathan and the MacDaddy-O’s Band. (Free for all riders. $20 donation for guests.)
