The Smith Family Challenge 2020

Help me make a difference!

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

So I'm going to give my personal best, so these children can achieve their personal best in life!

Your donation will give children in need essentials like school books, bags, uniforms, shoes and the help they need to keep up at school.

Not only will your donation help the kids but it will give me great motivation to keep going on the big day!

Thanks for your support (and wish me luck!)

Thank you to my Sponsors
