Challenge in the Tropics 2022

Will you support my fundraising?

Yet again, I am cycling the Smiling for Smiddy Challenge and again seeking your donation!

Smiling for Smiddy is a cancer research charity in Brisbane, named in memory of Adam Smiddy who died of a melanoma at the very young age of 26 in 2006.  You can find more information here.  In total, Smiling for Smiddy has raised over $10m for cancer research at the Mater Hospital, Brisbane.

This year the Smiddy Challenge is again in early May and for logistical reasons again in Far North Queensland; a 680km five-day ride based out of Cairns.  Last year, Nicole joined me for the ride and bullied me into some serious training.  This year she will be away so I have enjoyed a more relaxed training schedule, which may be a problem!

Last year, I promised to match your donations and not to ask you again if I achieved my target of raising $25,000.  So, in asking for your support again, as an incentive for you to donate this year, I will give $2 for every $1 you give up to an aggregate of $25,000

I will be posting our daily progress on my Facebook page: https://facebook.com/peter.thompson.18847

Many thanks
