The latest edition aims to raise awareness of the most prominent and preventable types of cancer, including breast, skin, colon, prostate and testicular cancer, in addition to childhood and cervical cancer.

Free breast cancer screenings are to be offered throughout the nationwide ride, including clinical, ultrasound and mammograms, for both women and men.
