The 2020 Nicola Werner Challenge

The Nicola Werner Challenge (NWC) aims to bring together cyclists on different venues for a challenging ride in order to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer.  

Spend the day as Nicola Werner would have, taking on your challenge, living the moment, forging friendships and enjoying the natural scenery.

Dedicate the day to a close friend or family member who has suffered or is suffering a serious illness like cancer.

Make a contribution to cancer research in support of research projects at Institute Gustave Roussy (Paris) and the German Cancer Research Center (Heidelberg) in the name of the NWC.

Ed. N° 5 will be different from previous editions; the Corona Pandemic is more trigger than cause for progress:

NWC rides on September 12 in Paris and locally in Basel, Berlin, Bochum, Black Forest, Seattle connected via Zoom.

No entry fee for NWC events

Every participant is asked to make a fundraising contribution to the NWC; the three best fundraisers will be awarded. At least 70% of the funds raised by individuals will be attributed to the research projects.
