Humboldt Man is Cycling 200 Miles to Help Save Lives

HUMBOLDT, Tenn. - Humboldt man, Mark Zautner, is cycling throughout the city for a good cause.

For the fifth year in a row, Mark Zautner is riding to fight children's cancer by participating in the Great Cycle Challenge.

He is preparing for the month-long cycling challenge beginning September 1st.

This challenge will help him raise money for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund.

“All the money goes right to the kids, all the money goes to research the fund… to figure out a cure, or at least to make it more comfortable for the kids. Most of the kids by the time they're 50, they have all sorts of medical problems because of the treatments, so we need better treatments.”

Zautner reports 38 US children pass every week due to cancer.

His goal is to ride 200 miles from September first to September 30th and raise 500 dollars.

His goal is 500 but aims to go above and beyond that.

“This year is going to be a tough year for 200 miles, because I’ve got a new job, I’m working hard… I’m trying to keep everything going. I’m actually going back to school, everything is all happening at once, but I’m going to do those 200 miles.”

If you see Zautner cycling on the side of the road, make sure to help donate to the Children’s Cancer Research Fund, or give him some encouragement or say hello.

To donate to Zautner’s fund page, you can visit and if you’re a cyclist, he encourages you to make your own page too.
