 Stamford  See map

Cycle Against Cancer is an indoor “spinning” fundraising event that will benefit CT cancer patients and their families through the Connecticut Sports Foundation (CSF).  CSF was founded 25 years ago and provides financial support to CT cancer patients and their families. 


This event will take place at Sportsplex Stamford and the same event will take place at Sportsplex Bethel.  Both locations have entered into a friendly competition to raise the most money for CT cancer patients.


The spin portion of this event will take place in two
sessions, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm.  Each team will be provided one spin bike and strive to raise a minimum of $1,000.  Each team will decide who will spin for the designated amount of time during the
3-hour session.  This will be a high energy day as we come together to raise money for cancer patients in need.

Why support this event?


CSF provides financial assistance to CT families stricken with cancer for rent, mortgage, utilities, car payments, medical co-pays, food, medications, gasoline and transportation to and from hospital/treatment centers.  Our goal is to allow them to focus on their treatment.


Brenda Gonzalez of Stamford, CT was diagnosed with AML Leukemia, a cancer to the blood in April 2012. She
has already undergone several chemotherapy treatments and blood transfusions, which will be followed by a bone marrow transplant in hopes that her body will
stop producing cancer cells. Despite the long road ahead of her she is fighting every day and still manages to keep her free spirit and faith.


Brenda will be a 2012 grant recipient, along with other CT cancer patients across the State.

THE TOP FUNDRAISER will earn two tickets to CSF’s Annual Celebrity Dinner & Memorabilia event on Friday, February 8th at Mohegan Sun and the opportunity to meet Mark Teixeira, STAR first baseman for the New York Yankees.  For more information about CSF and the Annual Dinner event:  www.sportsfoundation.org.


All dollars raised through the Cycle Against Cancer and all CSF events STAY within the State of CT.
