The Smith Family Challenge 2024

Help me make a difference!

I'm tackling The Smith Family Challenge 2024 to help children in need to break the cycle of disadvantage through education. 

Over 2 days I will navigate, run, ride and paddle 100km through the bush to reach the finish line. 

It will be TOUGH! But the hard work will all be worth it so that I can help kids in need with their education. 

In Australia, 1 in 6 Children are growing up in disadvantaged homes, where even the basics in life are hard to come by.

But supporting their education is the key to breaking this cycle!

Your donation will give these kids the essentials they need like school books, bags, uniforms, shoes and extra help at school.

Thanks for your support :)

So far this year, I have helped provide:


School Essentials Packs


reading buddies and books


children with their education
