What is The Smith Family Challenge?

The Smith Family Challenge is an annual fundraising event that has contributed nearly $10million to The Smith Family Learning for Life program since it started in 2008.

It is an exhilarating 100km off-road adventure held over two days. Teams of four will navigate by foot, bike and on the water through a challenging course before reaching the finish line! The 2022 event will be based at Kangaroo Valley, in the stunning wildlife-rich countryside of NSW.

In 2022 the event aims to raise $1,000,000 with each team raising at least $40,000! All Challengers pay their own event costs, so 100% of donations go directly to helping kids in need. This will help The Smith Family support young Australians in need to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.

Help us break the cycle of disadvantage without even breaking a sweat.
