Dis Team

Challenge in the Tropics 2022

Why we ride

In May, we’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 are we taking on this challenge?

Because we're committed to making a real impact for cancer research at Mater.

As part of our challenge we are collectively aiming to raise over $15000 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 we need your help.

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

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

Thank you to our Sponsors
