SHARON — Local cyclists will have the chance to participate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Bike for Breakthroughs” event this Saturday at Cycle Life Studio.

The virtual event will be hosted by Ashley Park, a Grammy and Tony nominated actress and leukemia survivor, while Javens will lead the ride, according to a press release.

“We’re going to play it here on screen if anybody wants to ride a bike,” Javens said.
Javens has been involved with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society since approximately 2019. She is a charity team coordinator for QT2 Systems and has trained athletes and coaches who participate in events supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Since opening Cycle Life Studio in 2021, the company has hosted several events for the community, from an event for the Hope Center of Arts and Technology to a recent fundraiser for the Go Red for Women initiative. ‘American Heart Association Sunday.
