Cyclists mission to defeat childhood cancer

CYCLING: During the month of October, Kathleen Smith is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight childhood cancer.

Smith has pledged to ride 100km for the challenge. She has already ridden 77.5km and hopes to double her pledge amount before the end of the challenge.

Cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia. More than 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, three die every week.

"Cancer is terrible at any stage but to see young children suffering, it really pulls at your heartstrings,” Smith said.

This is the reason why Smith has decided to take part in the ride and raise funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue the work they do into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Smith is calling on donations to support the challenge which can be made through her fundrasing page to give these children the future that they deserve.

Today, Thursday, October 11 is Kick Cancer's Butt day.

This means that any online donation that Smith receives today will be doubled.
