Smiddy Challenge - Why I Ride

In August, I’ll be cycling 1600 km from Brisbane to Townsville as part of the 2020 Bottlemart Smiddy Challenge. That’s nine days in the saddle (I know, I’m sore just thinking about it).

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Firstly, it is my way of remembering and honoring my dear wife who was taken by cancer before her 57th birthday. Day 7 of the ride will be the second anniversary of her passing. 

Secondly, it's because I’m committed to the long, hard road to fight cancer - a disease that takes too many people away from their families far too soon.

As part of my challenge I’m aiming to raise $5000 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.
