Offering a helping hand once again to the action, doValue Greece promises that, along with the Society members, survivors/fighters, friends, patients and doctors, it will "ride faster than cancer".
This year the Bike Run takes place in hybrid form. The main run is starting at Zappeion, in the centre of Athens, on Sunday 5 June at 9am.
