C2C4C riders

I am riding for my colleague Fabian. Fabian is now taking some time off from work as he is under treatment for his cancer. In the end this is not about us, the riders, it's all about the patients suffering from this horrible disease.

Why raise funds for cancer organisations

Cancer is among the leading causes of death worldwide. Each year, there are 18.1 million new cases and 9.6 million  cancer-related deaths worldwide, and these numbers are growing. 

This is why Bristol-Myers Squibb has chosen to support the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and its members in their mission to reduce the global cancer burden and integrate cancer control into the world health and development agenda.

Encourage your colleagues, families and friends to donate, as cancer affects us all. Each team rides and raises funds for members of the Union for International Cancer Control.
