Team Sawaya Raises Over $16,000 at Cycle for Survival
On Friday February 8th, Nick Enthoven (Team Captain), Mike Raffaniello, Taylor Petersen, Josh Farkas and Zack Terefenko of Sawaya Partners participated in Cycle for Survival’s New York indoor cycling event at the Equinox Gym in Rockefeller Center. The 4-hour cycling event was fun filled and highly successful with the Sawaya Partners team raising over $16,000 to fund Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s (MSKCC) efforts in rare cancer research. “Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way, whether personally or through a loved one. We felt that Cycle for Survival was a good way for us to do our small part to give back and support the incredible work that MSKCC has done to fight cancer” said Nick Enthoven. To date, Cycle for Survival has raised over $200 million to help support the fight against rare cancers.
