U.S. RE Exec's Daughter Cycles Laos To Raise Funds To Help Deaf Children

Katherine Lister, daughter of Chris Lister, U.S. RE's Senior Vice President in charge of international operations, will pedal her bicycle on a five-day, 450-kilometer ride across Laos in November to raise money for Britain's National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS). U.S. RE has made a contribution to help Kate reach her goal of 2,500 pounds sterling. Kate became interested in the Society because her dad grew up with impaired hearing. As she explained, "my father would certainly have benefited from the kind of support that NDCS can offer." However, Kate added wryly, "I don't think even NDCS could cure the selective hearing he has when I ask for money." Kate has been training all Summer. She pedaled 25 miles in 90 minutes in the Liphook Cycle Race near the Lister family home in West Sussex and covered some 90 miles in the London-Brighton Race. Kate will be riding with a group of about 40 cyclists over the rugged terrain of Laos.
