The second annual Ride for Hope is returning to Schaumburg on July 30, 2016. (WLS)

The second annual Ride for Hope is returning to Schaumburg on July 30, 2016. The motorcycle tour raises money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer. About 22,000 women receive a diagnosis of ovarian cancer each year. Sadly, nearly 15,000 will succumb to the disease. It's the fifth deadliest cancer among women. Age, obesity, reproductive history, and family history all play a role in women's risk factors.

The 90-mile Ride for Hope begins in Schaumburg, briefly stops in Sycamore for refreshments, and then returns to St. Peter Lutheran Church's picnic grove for an after-party. You can register here. The fee is $30 per rider and $30 per passenger. The first Ride for Hope raised $25,600 to benefit the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. Susan Tullo, the Treasurer for the Ride for Hope, and a six-month Uterine Cancer survivor, joined ABC 7 Live from Schaumburg to talk about the ride, and how to save lives through early detection.
