About Race for Ace
WHAT: Join us on May 2019 (date TBD) for the forth annual Race for ACE fundraiser! It’s an event that honors the courage, strength and life of Andy Ecker, while raising funds for pediatric cancer. We had an amazing turnout last year and raised over $100,000, and look forward to an even better turnout this year!
HOW: To secure a bike, start a team, or make a donation, please click here. We are suggesting participants raise a minimum of $250. There are 130 spots available in the two classes, so start fundraising now if you want a chance to spin! If you would like to participate or join us at the bar, but do not plan to ride, we encourage you to contribute to an individual biker’s fundraising page, or to the group.

Sponsorship is a significant and meaningful way to honor Andy and all of the children who have been diagnosed with a brain or spinal cord tumors. 100% of sponsorship funds will go directly to services and research to help these children and their families. Click to learn more.
WHY: This event is organized by Andy’s family and friends to ho
nor his brave fight against brain cancer, which he sadly lost in July of 2015. But more broadly, the Race for ACE is about recognizing 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 man. 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 move the needle on cancer care. Making Headway specifically provides services to NYU Langone Medical Center’s pediatric center, where Andy was treated. He was compassio
nate 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.
