Far North Queensland Smiddy Challenge 2021

Why I ride

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

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Well, I do love cycling and setting out to train and complete something that's going to require some determination to achieve. This ride takes in some lovely parts of North Queensland and it also has a great cause. It provides an opportunity to make an 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?
