Noosa Triathlon 2021

Team "KJ" Katherine Jackman -  healthcare hero

Katherine Jackman - KJ  is our healthcare hero and an exeptional lady 30 years as a nursing leader. KJ is the Nurse Manager of Mater's Cardiac Critical Care Unit, her experince in health care has spanned internationally from war zones to inner city critical care and education. KJ has incredible passion, energy and drive to make a challenge benefit those around her and beyond.

When KJ was interviewed in 2019 about Noosa Tri, this is what she said:

"The Noosa Tri is such an exhilarating, exhausting and fun event to be part of.

Experiencing this iconic challenge with Team Smiddy means the world to me because it gives me a sense of purpose.  I may only be one person, but I believe that when we come together, collectively we can all make a huge positive difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.

Tackling the Noosa Tri as part of Team Smiddy is such a rewarding experience and I look forward to this event every year.

I’d love nothing more than to be standing shoulder to shoulder in our Team Smiddy Tri-suits with as many as possible."


We've committed to being part of Team Smiddy at the 2021 Noosa Triathlon. Because we're committed to the long, hard road to fight cancer. 
As part of our challenge we're raising funds for ground-breaking research at Mater into the causes, prevention and treatment of various types of cancer.

And this is where we need your help.
