I have entered the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour, which takes place on Sunday 9th March 2014. The Cycle Tour, as many of you know, is a 109 km cycle race in Cape Town, a world-class event which attracts 35 000 participants a year and is the biggest of its kind.
I have decided to “ride for a purpose” and will be supporting Rainbows and Smiles Childhood Cancer Foundation. This is a small foundation that supports children fighting cancer. Rainbows and Smiles provide emotional, social and financial support to families in need when a child is diagnosed with cancer. The founder, Bonita Suckling lost her only son Jed, to brain cancer when he was only 6 years old. The mission is to give children with cancer the best quality of life.
Thank you so much for supporting me in my cycle challenge and mission to make a difference in the life of a child with cancer.
