Join us on Sunday, June 3rd, 2018 for the third annual Race for ACE fundraiser! It’s an afternoon of spinning and drinks that honors the life of the beloved Andy Ecker, while raising funds for critical pediatric cancer research and services. We had an amazing turnout the past two years, raising over $100,000 each year and having a blast at the after party! We are confident that this year’s event will continue in this spirit of success, and we look forward to seeing you there!


WHERE: Flywheel Sports Noho - 51 Astor Place, New York, NY 10003. Celebration to follow at Solas (232 East 9th Street) at 3:00pm

Flywheel: 1:30pm & 2:30pm

Bar: 3:00pm at Solas (232 East 9th Street)

HOW: To secure a bike for the spinning portion of the day, please click the orange "Create your Fundraiser Page" button at the bottom of this page! We are suggesting participants try and raise $200 or more, but anyone is encouraged to join us in our ride. There are limited spots available, so start fundraising now for a chance to spin with Andy’s family and friends! If you would like to simply join us at the bar for the after party, or be involved in some capacity, but do not plan to ride, we encourage you to contribute. Click on the "Donate" button above to contribute to an individual’s fundraiser page, or make a donation to the general donation page.

WHY: This event is organized by Andy’s family and friends to honor his brave fight against brain cancer, which he sadly lost in July of 2015, and to support an important cause. Race for ACE also recognizes Andy’s legacy as a passionate Michigan fan, mathematical genius, hardworking employee of Macquarie Capital, winner of every board game ever played, welcoming and loyal friend, loving big brother, amazing son, and all around remarkable guy. Please join us in celebrating his life!

WHO: Proceeds from this event will go directly to the Making Headway Foundation, an organization dedicated to the care, comfort, and cure of children with brain and spinal cord cancers. Making Headway is unique in that it funds clinical research paving the way for cancer treatments in our future, as well as supportive services that patients need now. Both are critical elements in our efforts to make progress on cancer care. Making Headway specifically provides services to NYU Langone Medical Center’s pediatric center, where Andy was treated. He was compassionate and playful with the children being treated alongside him at NYU – teaching them games (of course) even during his own struggle. We know this is a cause he would want us to rally behind.
