Pretoria - The wheels are set in motion for the ninth Cancervive Awareness Ride which takes place in October.
The ride will see cancer survivors, supporters, performers and motorcyclists embark on an eight-day journey to spread the word about the importance of early detection of cancer in different towns, from October 5 to 12.
Survivors who attended a Cancervive Awareness Ride launch yesterday held at the Sun Arena at Time Square are expected to share their stories of hope with about 30 000 people living in rural communities during the journey.
Survivors will also share their testimonials in a bid to help break down taboos, stigmas and fears surrounding cancer.
The team is expected to leave from Time Square, riding to towns like Middelburg, Heidelberg, Hartbeespoort, Magaliesburg and Rustenburg among others.
