TJ Smiddy Ride

Far North Queensland Smiddy Challenge 2021

My Activity Tracking


Why I ride

In May, I’ll be taking on the Far North Queensland Smiddy Challenge. Cycling up to 410 km over three days (I know, I’m sore just thinking about it).

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Because I’m committed to making a real impact for cancer research at Mater.

As part of my 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?

2021 Smiddy Challenge

Sunday 10th Jan
I have decided to take part in the 2021 Far North Queensland Smiddy Ride in May. 410km over 3 days. I hope to raise funds for the great research undertaken by Smiling for Smiddy and the Mater Foundation. All donations will go directly to Foundation. I will be funding the costs of the flights, meals and accomodation myself. I hope to raise funds, get fit, lose weight and explore more of this amazing country.

Thank you to my Sponsors
