Guest post: Help me fight children’s cancer

11314Vaught’s note: Danville’s Ruby Cline Eaton is participating in the Great Cycle Challenge this month if hopes of raising $2,500 to fight kids’ cancer. She lost a God-daughter to cancer who was born 36 hours after her own daughter about 40 years ago. That makes this cause especially meaningful to Ruby. Many central Kentucky runners know Ruby because she’s at so many races taking great photographers. Enjoy her blog post and help her reach her goal.

This month, I am riding in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer and nd my challenge starts now. My goal is to ride 175 miles throughout the month and I will be pedaling as hard as I can to reach my target.

Why am I doing this? Because cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in the United States – 38 children die of cancer every week.

This challenge will be tough, but it’s nothing compared to what these brave kids face every day of their lives as they battle this terrible disease. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

Almost 40 years ago Ruby Cline Eaton  lost a godchild, right, to cancer. Her own daughter is on the left.

I am taking on this personal challenge to raise funds to fight kids’ cancer and give these kids the brighter futures that they deserve. Please support my challenge and join me in the fight to end childhood cancer by making a donation through my fundraising page:

All funds raised will support Children’s Cancer Research Fund to continue their work to develop innovative treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Thank you for your support.
