Leigh-Ann and Matt Ride for Rainbows

Leigh-Ann and Matt Ride for Rainbows

Personal message

We have entered the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge which takes place on Sunday the 16th November 2014 and we are riding for kids with cancer. 

As most of you are aware, we tragically lost our incredible dad to this devastating disease just last year and it has since become our mission to complete this race every year that we possibly can in his remembrance. We have chosen to “ride for a purpose” and will be supporting the Rainbows and Smiles Childhood Cancer Foundation. This is a small foundation that supports children fighting cancer. One child at a time, 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. Their mission is to provide children with cancer the best quality of life and to do whatever it takes to hear the words "no evidence of disease".

We would be eternally grateful if you could please help us raise funds  for  this most valuable cause and  to make a difference in the life of a child with cancer.

To help us raise funds, please click the Donate Now link on this page. No amount is too small and every rand sponsored would be most appreciated.

Today 47 children will be diagnosed with cancer and 7 will die, help us ease the suffering....!
