Related employees participate in Cycle for Survival at Hudson Yards to advance rare cancer research

Starting on May 13th, Hudson Yards hosted the destination's first Cycle for Survival event over the course of three days, combining high-energy indoor cycling with fundraising for rare cancer research. More than 20 employees from Related joined the ride, which had a total of over 2,400 participants cycling on stationary bikes just outside the Public Square & Gardens. Expert instructors from Equinox—a founding partner of Cycle for Survival—guided participants riding in the outdoor tent, alongside upbeat music and pom-pom waving. Cheering on the cyclists was a crowd of cancer survivors and supporters who told their inspiring personal stories on an outside stage. Marketing VP Natalie Johnson led a cycling team of Related employees in honor of late colleague Stephanie Stewart, who succumbed to cancer last year, raising over $35,000 to battle cancer. All proceeds raised from the event went towards funding research and clinical trials for rare cancers, led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK).
