Christa has decided to take on the challenge to cycle the 947 Ride Joburg to raise funds and awareness for Rainbows and Smiles to honour children fighting cancer.
Rainbows and Smiles is a childhood cancer foundation close to her heart. If our brave little fighters can face hardship each day, then keep those legs pumping as admiration for their strength. Every year in South Africa, almost 1000 children are diagnosed with cancer.
Our socio-economic challenges, and generally poor awareness of early warning signs of childhood cancer, means that many of these children are diagnosed very late into their illness. As a result, they face a difficult battle.
Team 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.
The government does not fund rainbows and Smiles, and we rely on the generosity of our supporters and the passion of our volunteers to enable us to do the work we do.
Thank you for supporting our challenge and mission to make a difference in the life of a child with cancer. To help Christa raise funds, please click on the DONATE BUTTON and follow the easy steps.
