John Smithies is riding a bike built in the 1940’s, that he found in Christchurch, from the top to the bottom of the country to support Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. John wants to honour his late wife who passed away in 2011 from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and also support those with the disease and their families. John is retired but as he says in this Timaru Herald article that being a bit older means, “I can set my own timetable”. He hopes to raise $50,000 and begins his journey on September 15, which is World Lymphoma Awareness Day.
