On Feb. 9, cast members of NBC’s “Chicago Fire” went from saving lives on TV to being real-life heroes when they participated in “Cycle for Survival” at Equinox in the Loop. They jumped on bikes for a group-cycling ride to raise money for rare cancer research. Among those getting their heart rate up were Miranda Rae Mayo, Randy Flagler, and Eamonn Walker, plus hundreds of other supporters, doctors, cancer patients, and caregivers. Cycle for Survival has raised more than $200 million nationwide for rare cancer research since it was founded in 2007. Funds go to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to support its efforts to change the way cancer is diagnosed and treated.
