Island teen raising funds for kids battling cancer

A Comox Valley youth is helping kids battle cancer.

Brandon Reeder is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge, a nation-wide fundraising initiative by the SickKids Foundation. Reeder says his goal is to ride 201 kilometres throughout the month of June.

“I’m part of a running club called The Spirit Runners, and my coach said that it would be a good idea for me to get involved. I started cycling to work – I work at the Comox Valley Airport – it’s a good 12 kilometres, there and back. I started with that and hopefully I can do 201 kilometres throughout the month of June.”

Reeder notes his initial goal was to raise $500 as part of the Challenge. He’s already surpassed that and is hoping to build as the month progresses.
