Far North Queensland Smiddy Challenge 2021

Why I ride

In May, I’ll be taking on the Far North Queensland Smiddy Challenge with my sister Lu and 60 other keen riders. Cycling up to 680 km and 7000 m in climbing 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 our work of Mater Research.  Your support has provided us with the opportunity to develop a new drug treatment that we will be taking into clinical trial in the near future.  It is also supporting the research of my colleagues at Mater Research in developing new diagnostics for ovarian and pancreatic cancer, and new immunotherapies.

Your support in the past has brought us this far, we need to your help to take these developments into the clinic.   

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?

Thank you

Friday 14th May
Well, that's it for the FNQ Smiddy Challenge 2021.  Together we raised over $400,000 for cancer research at Mater.  I can tell you the riding was wonderful and recommend you get up to FNQ as soon as you can, not necessary to see it all from a bike.  We had a great group of over 50 riders and the Smiddy crew to a fantastic job keeping us safe, fed and moving.  I am sorry I don't have images to upload but you will find lots on the Smiddy FB page to see how beautiful the ride was.  Again, thank you for your support.  I have to get back to pushing back the frontiers of science! Brian
