Crunching for a cause: Rebecca and Roxy

Every March, Redkite holds its Crunches Challenge to raise money for families facing childhood cancer. In 2022, 864 brilliant fundraisers came together and crunched their way through March. We are so thankful to those who participated and hope to see everyone back next year.

One of our wonderful ‘Crunchers’ is Rebecca who signed up for the crunches challenge for her four-year-old daughter, Roxy, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in 2021. Rebecca was so dedicated to the challenge that she was sometimes completing her crunches on the hospital floor during Roxy’s treatment. Rebecca shared why taking part in the challenge was so important to her:

“”Workplace Giving brings me so much happiness. If you give from your heart it will bring a smile to others and that makes it all worth it”

She wants to help raise awareness of children’s cancer and create a more open conversation about the topic, one that promotes people to speak about it. The work Redkite does would not be possible without our supporters, and Rebecca wanted to thank every one of you:

The services Redkite provides are vital to families going through this life changing diagnosis and without people supporting it would be very difficult for families to get through these times, so a huge thank you.”

If you are deciding whether to join in the Crunches Challenge next year, or one of Redkite’s other fundraising events, Rebecca says just go for it: “Do it for yourself mentally and physically, but also because you are helping a beautiful little soul and their family through an absolute horrible time of their lives”.

A big thank you to all who joined us for the 2022 Crunch Challenge, and our Redkite to support families in their darkest days.
