Johnny & Helen's 947 for Rainbows 2017

Johnny & Helen's 947 for Rainbows 2017

Personal message

The fun loving adventurous couple, Johnny and Helen have 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 my heart.

Johnny will be doing the cycle race twice for these precious children – while Helen will do the race once and then put on her support crew hat for her hubby. 

Taking on the challenge for these two has been an easy decision; as they are both passionate about making a difference!

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.

They are not funded by government, and we rely on the generosity of supporters and the passion of their 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 us raise funds please click the DONATE BUTTON next to the barometer and follow the easy steps.
