Carla has taken on the challenge to cycle the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge to raise funds and awareness for Rainbows and Smiles - a childhood cancer foundation close to her heart.
“One of my closest friends, Bonni has experienced the pain of childhood cancer first hand when her only son Jed was diagnosed with brain cancer and sadly, he died in 2011 – I will be dedicating my cycle race to Jed and riding in his memory.”
Please make a small donation to her cycle race, eg: R1 per kilometre R94.70 = 94.7km (-:
Every year in South Africa, almost 1000 children are diagnosed with cancer. Our socio-economic challenges, and generally poor level of awareness of early warning signs of childhood cancer, means that a large number of these children are diagnosed very late into their illness. As a result, they face a difficult battle.
The team at Rainbows Riders is on a mission to raise awareness and funds for children fighting cancer. Rainbows and Smiles is a community-based, charitable foundation dedicated to providing emotional, social and financial support to children diagnosed with cancer or a life threatening illness, and their families and caregivers.
Rainbows & Smiles are not funded by government, and rely on the generosity of our supporters and the passion of our volunteers to enable them to do the work they do.
Thank you for supporting the challenge and mission to make a difference in the life of a child with cancer.
