JI spent the end of the week/last weekend in Baltimore, Maryland visiting cancer fighters in the area and speaking at the University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center .
The Greenebaum Cancer Center is a top research facility, designated by the National Cancer Institute. Get out your golf clubs for their Fairway to Life program, dedicated to Breast Cancer.
Next stop: The Ulman Cancer Fund’s Blue Jeans Ball event, where Imerman Angels was honored this year, on the 30th. (Jonny was flattered and thanks The Ulman Cancer Fund for the recognition!!)
The 31st- Jonny took a trip north to NYC to support IA Survivor Angel, Jen Linn, in her Cycle for Survival event (www.cycleforsurvival.org) at Equinox Gym. The event was in support of the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where Jonny recently spoke: thousands of fighters, survivors and caregivers (many in IA’s network) came out to fight cancer!

Need an excuse to get your fitness back in gear? Imerman Angels will be riding at Cycle for Survival to support research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. The event takes place in NYC on January 31 and in Chicago on February 6. Cycle for Survival has already raised more than $2 million to fund research and clinical trials that bring new progress – and new hope – to people affected by cancer.
Feel free to gather a few riders together to form a team or coordinate through our Facebook Fan Page to find others to ride with you. Go to www.cycleforsurvival.org to register and wear your Imerman Angels tshirts to help us spread the mission!
Not from the Windy City or Big Apple? That’s okay! You can ride as a Satellite Rider, in a gym or on the road. Check out the website for more information.
