Help me make a difference!

As a way of combining support for the Smith Family Challenge and celebrating International Women's Day this year, on 8 and 9 March, we have put together an all-female team for MS!

Together with my work colleagues Emma-Jane Newton, Elise Kennedy and Cluny McPherson we will be supporting The Smith Family Challenge to help children break the cycle of disadvantage through education. 

In Australia, 1 in 7 Children are growing up in disadvantaged homes, where even the basics in life are hard to come by.

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 pedalling on the big day!

Thanks for your support (and wish me luck!)

Thank you to my Sponsors
