On the 12th May 2019 take part in Ovarian Cancer Action’s brand new challenge event; a 100km cycle from London to Oxford!
Winding through Oxford’s beautiful historic centre and ending up at the John Radcliffe Hospital, where Professor Ahmed's vital research is taking place, this scenic and mostly-flat route is a fantastic challenge for cyclists of all levels.
The cycle will help fund research at Oxford University into the development of the world’s first ovarian cancer screening tool. This could be the first of its kind and one of the most exciting developments in ovarian cancer research in recent years.
If ovarian cancer is detected at the earliest possible stage, a woman could have a 90% chance of survival. If is detected in late stage, her chance of survival reduces dramatically to as little as 4%. And yet there still no reliable method to detect the disease early.
By joining Ovarian Cancer Action on this cycle you can help fund research to find the world's first screening tool for ovarian cancer. A screening tool could detect ovarian cancer at a much earlier stage than current methods. Find out more about the research.
Use your pedal power as a force for good and join Team OCA for this new challenge and be part of something truly unique.
