The 2018 Great Cycle Challenge has officially come to an end on 31 October, and Team Al Siraat would like to give you an update on our fundraising efforts:
Our cycling team has raised the incredible amount of $$4,006.23 during this October – all thanks to our charitable Al Siraat community.
This month of cycling and fundraising has made a huge difference to the children, siblings, parents and families affected by cancer as we all strive for the day when childhood cancer is a distant memory.
So far this year, 483 families have heard the painful words, "your child has cancer". We have lost 129 little lives to this terrible disease.
Those families deserve more effective treatments and better outcomes for their kids, which is why cancer research is so important to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve. Your donations support the Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) to continue their critical work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer, InShaAllah.
Sr. Amnah Arain wrote a short article about her experience in this year’s challenge which is published in the latest edition of the Australasian Muslim Times (AMUST).
While the riding part of the challenge has now finished, donations can still be made until late November.
With much gratitude to you all for your generous donations: JazakAllah khairan!
