The Smith Family Challenge 2021

Participating in their Challenge

Help me make a difference!

I'm tackling The Smith Family Challenge 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. 

Its going to 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.

Plus, your support will give me great motivation to keep going in training and in the race!

Thanks for your support :)

So far this year I helped provide

Magnificent undertaking young man! (although I caveat this statement by making clear that I sadly doubt that you will feel neither young nor, at times at least, a man as you manage to survive the maelstrom of this 2 days). Brilliant buddy!
