Indoor Cycling Fundraiser to Benefit Ovarian Cancer Research




The Be the Difference Foundation is holding its sixth Wheel to Survive Dallas event from 9 a.m to3 p.m., February 18, at the Aaron Family Jewish Community Center of Dallas. This high-energy, inspirational indoor cycling fundraiser benefits programs for women currently battling ovarian cancer and provides research dollars for a cure. Hundreds of participants form teams and ride to raise money for the cause, as well as honor friends, family and loved ones affected by the disease.

Jill Bach, cofounder of Be the Difference Foundation and 10-year survivor of ovarian cancer, says, “Through the support we receive at Wheel to Survive, Be the Difference Foundation has been instrumental in providing the funds desperately needed for research.”

Since 2012, more than 1,000 participants in Wheel to Survive events around the country have raised more than $2.2 million to benefit The Clearity Foundation, Mary Crowley Cancer Research, MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Pennsylvania’s Ovarian Cancer Research Center, NYU Langone Medical Center-Perlmutter Cancer Center and The Lazarex Foundation.
