Helen is set to cover 200kms in the The Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Hawthorn Football Club’s Number 1 female ticketholder, Helen Kapalos, is doing her bit to conquer cancer, and you can help!

Over two days on 27 – 28 October, Helen will cover 200kms on the seat of the bike, riding from Melbourne to Healesville and back again to raise money and awareness for the Peter Macallum Cancer Centre.

The Ride to Conquer Cancer® raises money to support life-saving cancer research and education at Peter Mac in Melbourne.

Peter Mac is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to cancer and is a national leader in multi-disciplinary cancer care as well as and a national and international leader in laboratory, clinical and translational research.

One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. In Australia, 43,000 deaths will be attributed to cancer this year and more than 115,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed.

The Ride brings together communities of riders, survivors and their supporters for one common goal: to conquer cancer in this lifetime.

Help Helen to go beyond her target by donating today.
