Catherine Running the Comrades for Rainbows 2019

Personal message

Catherine has taken on the challenge to run the Comrades Marathon to raise funds and awareness for Rainbows and Smiles - a childhood cancer foundation close to her heart.

‘Those we love don’t go away

They walk beside us everyday 

Unseen unheard but always near 

Still loved still missed and very dear'

Please make a small donation to her comrades run R1 per “crazy” kilometre R90 = R90

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 their supporters and the passion of their 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.
