Noosa Triathlon 2022

Why am I doing this?

In January 2021, I made a "typical" new years resolution to lose weight and live a healthier life.
I made a dramatic change to my diet (following the CSIRO guidelines) and was able to lose a massive 48kg by the end of the year.
Along the way, I also learned to actually like exercise (running, kayaking, mountain biking and hiking to name a few).
I decided to set myself a new challenge in 2022 - to compete in a few triathlons! I came across the great work that Mater do in Cancer Research (as with most of us, I know many friends and family who have been impacted by Cancer) and am excited to be a part of "Smiling for Smiddy" in the Noosa Triathlon later this year.
Wish me luck, and if possible, make a donation to this great cause.

Why I Tri

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.

Will you support my fundraising by making a donation today?

Thank you to my Sponsors
