Men's Soccer Participates in Cycle For Survival

On Sunday, Feb. 12 members of the Columbia men's soccer program took part in the Sixth Annual Cycle for Survival Charity Event at Equinox on 43rd Street in New York City.  The Lions raised over $3,000 in the event by participating in a series of spin classes.

Cycle for Survival, co-founded in 2007 by Jennifer Goodman Linn and her husband, Dave, is the national, indoor relay-style team cycling event that has raised more than $9 million in support of lifesaving research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and in the past five years has funded twenty-five clinical trials and research studies.

This year's event was particularly emotional and powerful due to the founder Jennifer Goodman Lin passing away last summer from cancer. The men's soccer team has a special tie with this event in that the husband of Lin, Dave, played men's league soccer with former Columbia assistant coach Tommy McMenemy.
