Far North Queensland Smiddy Challenge 2021

Why I ride

In May, I’ll be taking on the Far North Queensland Smiddy Challenge. Cycling up to 680 km over five days (I know, I’m sore just thinking about it).

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Because I’m committed to making a real impact for cancer research at Mater.

As part of my challenge I’m aiming to raise valuable funds to support the work of Mater Research—Mater’s world-class research institute that’s investing in some game-changing work into the causes, treatment and prevention of cancer.

And this is where I need your help.

Together, we can help to give more families more time together; to make more memories. 

Will you support my fundraising by making a donation to my fundraising page today?
