In October, Emma will be taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer.

Right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia, with 600 children diagnosed with cancer every year.

Sadly, statistically three die every week.

Emma told News Of The Area that she is motivated to do the challenge for two reasons.

“Firstly, I’ve done a few charity rides and runs over the last few years and it’s an amazing feeling knowing you’re doing a little bit to help raise money for the cause, which in this case is cancer research for kids.”

“Every bit counts.”

“Secondly, I’m doing this for me too, because it is a personal challenge for me,” she said.

Emma loves cycling and says that she has made some wonderful friends since she started.

Emma rides with a dedicated group of female cyclers, aptly name the ‘Pushy Ladies’.

They mostly ride for fun, encourage each other to have fun and improve themselves.

Emma told News Of The Area, “Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.”

“So doing this challenge, riding and raising funds to support the Children’s Medical Research Institute, will help them to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.”

“If you have a spare few dollars, please consider supporting my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve,” she said.

“Together, we can save little lives.”
