Gerrida Runs for Rainbows and Smiles 2020

Personal message

“Children with cancer are like candles in the wind who accept the possibility that they are in danger Of being extinguished by a gust of wind from nowhere and yet, as they flicker and dance to remain alive, Their brilliance challenges the darkness and dazzles those of us Who watch their light.” - Unknown


This will be my 6th Comrades and 4th-time fundraising for this amazing organisation. The last 20km of the run is extremely hard, but knowing that I am running for a purpose other than my own dreams, makes it a lot easier. My pain does not compare with the pain faced by children fighting cancer.

Children faced with the battle of fighting cancer are the bravest of brave, but they cannot fight cancer alone.

By making a contribution to this worthy cause, you too can be part of helping not only the #cancerwarriors, but their families too. This a debilitating disease that needs fundamental research, because childhood cancer is not rare!

Real superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles.
