Loup Digital Raises $43,751 for Rare Cancer Research
Loup Digital participated in cycle for Survival this year with 56 team members in two cities.
Loup Digital co-founder Emily Hughes lost her mom Patti to PEComa, an extremely rare cancer, in June 2016. She was treated for 27 months at Memorial Sloan Kettering by the nation's top oncologists, participating in the same premier clinical trials and studies funded by Cycle for Survival.
Even though rare cancers make up 50% of all cancer diagnoses, research surrounding them is severely underfunded. Loup Digital seeks to change that. Forty-eight team members cycled on February 23rd in Manhattan with eight more cycling in Bethesda on the 25th. Both events were just a few days before Patti's 62nd birthday.
After months of fundraising, Loup Digital beat their goal by nearly $9,000, bringing in $43,751 in total. They were in the top 100 teams nationally in terms of fundraising, as well as one of the top 10 in Bethesda and top 5 in New York.
100% of every dollar raised funds pioneering research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events.
Co-Founder Emily Hughes also spoke at the New York event about her company's motivation for riding.
