Challenge in the Tropics 2022

Will you support my fundraising?

At the end of April, I’ll be joining the 2022 Challenge in the Tropics, cycling 410 kms over three days.

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Well it's a good question, not having done any serious riding ever before. The last time (before about a month ago) that I rode a bike was just commuting during post-grad. And that certainly wasn't with cleats.

It's because I’m committed to making a real impact for cancer research at Mater. Smiling for Smiddy is a great charity that does a lot of real good.

As part of the 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?
