Why I Tri
I recently lost a very dear friend, Tandi, after a long battle with cancer. Tandi was an incredible and inspiring person and someone who's legacy will live on. Her battle was 10 years long and included her own spiritual journey but also involved new, experimental treatments.
Almost exactly a year earlier, I lost my mum to cancer as well. Mum's battle was quick but very painful and it was heartbreaking watching someone so special to me (and to so many other people) go through so much pain and suffering.
So I've committed to being part of Team Smiddy at the 2022 Noosa Triathlon.
That means in October, I'll be taking on an Olympic distance triathlon. That's a 1500m swim, 40km ride and 10km run! Yes, I'll be pushing my body to the limit.
Why am I taking on this challenge?
Because I'm committed to the long, hard road to fight cancer.
As part of my challenge I'm aiming to raise funds towards ground-breaking research at Mater into the causes, prevention and treatment of various types of cancer.
And this is where I need your help.
