Wheel to Survive is coming to Dallas and now you can join the fight against ovarian cancer.
Less than 50% of women battling ovarian cancer survive more than 5 years. Sadly, there is no routine, reliable early detection test available for ovarian cancer today.
However, Be The Difference Foundation is working to change this and Wheel to Survive is a great way for you to join the fight.
Wheel to Survive is an indoor cycling fundraiser benefiting programs for women currently battling ovarian cancer and providing research dollars for a cure.
Cyclists of all skill levels are welcome to participate and 100% of the dollars raised by YOU will fund programs to help women increase their chances of survival from this deadly disease.
Pedal hard or hardly pedal…if you can ride a bike you can be the difference in the fight against ovarian cancer!
Since its inception in 2013, Wheel to Survive has raised more than $2.7 million in the fight against ovarian cancer.
Wheel to Survive Dallas will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2019 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the JCC of Dallas, 7900 Northaven Road, Dallas, TX 75230.

Be The Difference
Be the Difference Foundation was formed in 2012 by four ovarian cancer survivors with a common goal to “Be the Difference” in the fight against ovarian cancer.
One woman is diagnosed with ovarian cancer every 24 minutes. One woman dies from ovarian cancer every 37 minutes. 70% women diagnosed will die from the disease.
The goal of Wheel to Survive is to bring awareness of the disease symptoms, fund programs for women battling ovarian cancer today and provide research dollars for a CURE.
