The biggest annual hedge fund confab begins next week not with a cocktail party, but with a bike ride. Attendees of the SALT Conference in Las Vegas are encouraged to sign up for an indoor cycle session to raise money for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Now to worry, if you don’t like to sweat you or if you won’t be in Las Vegas on May 7, you can still support the riders by sponsoring one or more of them.
If you have already signed up to ride, send me a link to your fundraising page and I will happily post it here and on our social media sites. (E-mail me at email@example.com).
Find out more by visiting Cycle For Survival At SALT.
