Thank you all enormously for your support, together we are helping to defeat cancer.


Secondary breast cancer is cancer that has spread beyond the breast and nearby lymph nodes to other parts of the body. There are around 55,900 new breast cancer cases in the UK every year, that's more than 150 every day (2016-2018). Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, accounting for 15% of all new cancer cases (2016-2018).

Despite the best available treatments, it remains the second leading cause of death for women with cancer. While new treatments are enabling more people to live longer with this disease, the fact remains that only a small portion of breast cancer research funding is devoted to secondary breast cancer. This is why your help now is so impactful.

Christine O’Connell, who was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer in 2013, created One More City in 2017 when she and 3 friends rode from London to Paris in 24 hours to raise money for breast cancer support services. As she was training for One More City’s second fundraiser in 2018, Christine learned that her cancer had returned, and it had spread to her brain and bones. This is when her journey as a secondary breast cancer patient and advocate began. In the years since, Christine and her fellow One More City riders have led six rides through five countries, raising more than £250,000 for secondary breast cancer research in the UK. For this year’s European event, Christine, and her team of 39 riders, will head out from Munich on 28 September, destination Venice. They will cover the approximate 600k over 4 days, facing several gruelling climbs along the way.

“When living with cancer, especially secondary cancer, the challenge is never over; there are always more treatments to endure, more scans to face, more side effects to manage. So, we hope you will support us in our journey of always pushing onward: in kilometres, in fundraising, and in the research.”

This year’s fantastic One More City riders are;
