Ride 4 Women is a women's cancer awareness initiative of an annual bicycle tour, in cooperation with ESGO and ENYGO.
The annual bicycle tour is aimed at setting an example and focus on informing women about female cancer, early detection, diagnostics, treatment options, and lifestyle management to encourage women to do a physical activity and a balanced diet, thus actively help to reduce the number of deaths related to women cancer and to prevent gynaecological diseases.
On July 3, 2017, Ride 4 Women started in Oslo, Norway and went via Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic and finally ended in Vienna, symbolically bringing the ESGO Awareness Activities to the city where the ESGO 2017 Congress took place in November.
The group made 6 stops in major European cities and at every stop a public event with the support and participation of volunteers, national cancer organizations and national patient groups was planned.
