Veristat Raises $20,355 to Support Rare Cancer Research
On Saturday, February 27th, Team Veristat JOINED THE BATTLE with Cycle for Survival 2016! Team Veristat had riders at both the Boston, MA and Palo Alto, CA events.
In Boston, over 900 riders participated in this amazing, fun and inspiring event! Across the country in 2016 alone, over twenty million dollars has been raised to fund rare cancer research.
“Like many of my colleagues, I know the reality that cancer will touch us all, one way or another, and that fearing it is useless – fighting back is the way to beat it,” said Lindsey Lukis, Director of Talent and Culture at Veristat, “I joined Veristat’s Cycle for Survival team to fight back. As a clinical research company, Veristat often works in oncology research. Cycle for Survival was an amazing extension of the work we do every day and feel so passionately about; it was also an incredible opportunity to fulfill our personal missions, to #jointhebattle against cancer, and to stand united in giving Rare Cancers no option but to back down.”
Veristat would like to thank all of its supporters who donated to Team Veristat and helped us surpass our goal! We thank all of our riders, family members, employees and corporate partners for making this possible!

More about Cycle for Survival
Cycle for Survival is the national movement to beat rare cancers. About half of all cancer patients are fighting a rare cancer — Leukemia, lymphoma, pancreatic cancer, bladder cancer, ovarian cancer, and all pediatric cancers are just some of the many rare forms of the disease. These patients often face limited or no treatment options. Since 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised over $50 million through its signature high-energy, indoor, team cycling events; funding pioneering rare cancer research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Together with the movement’s founding partner, Equinox, Cycle for Survival has supported over 100 innovative clinical trials, research studies, and major research initiatives.
100% of every donation funds rare cancer research.
