Kate Langbroek breaks a sweat to raise money for the Children’s Cancer Foundation
While rumours circulate around the studio corridors at ARN of Hughesy & Kate‘s possible switch from the KIIS Network to the Pure Gold Network in 2018, it’s business as usual for the funny pair this week, raising $12,000 for the Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Hughesy promised to donate $2,000 for each kilometre Kate completed in the Melbourne Run on Sunday, ultimately underestimating his co-host’s athletic prowess.
“She’s not a runner by any stretch of the imagination,” Hughesy explained, handing over the $12,000 cheque to the Foundation on yesterday’s show.
Kate’s 13-year-old son was diagnosed with leukaemia at the age of six, and she believes that part of the reason he is alive is because of the valuable research undertaken by the Cancer Foundation.
“They’re incredible and I got involved with them because my eldest son was diagnosed with leukaemia when he was 6 years old and that was, as you would imagine, horrendous,” Kate said.
Jogging for six kilometres non-stop, the drive host admitted the run was “hard, but not as hard as children’s cancer. I couldn’t stop.”
