Women's Tennis Participates in 2013 Cycle for Survival

Women's Tennis

Feb. 13, 2013

WASHINGTON - On Sunday morning, the Georgetown University women's tennis team followed up a Saturday victory by traveling to Equinox Bethesda, a fitness club and one of the home sites for Cycle For Survival. It was the second-consecutive year that Georgetown student-athletes and coaches have participated in the indoor cycling event to raise money to fund research at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a "rare cancer" is one with a prevalence of fewer than 200,000 affected individuals in the United States. Many rare cancers are drastically underfunded, leaving patients with limited treatment options. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the nation's preeminent center for research and treatment, is committed to changing that.

Not only did the tennis team, along with the men's lacrosse squad, cycle hard and raise the energy level in the room on Sunday morning, they also raised $1,400. After defeating George Washington, 4-3, on Saturday at Yates Fieldhouse, the Hoyas used the morning spin as a team workout and a good cause. They cycled in shifts for more than four hours to benefit the cause.

Overall, the 2013 event is over five days in 10 cities with 27 rides, 2,750 bikes and 13,000 participants.
