The Smith Family Challenge 2021

Our BIG Challenge to help children in need!

We're taking on The Smith Family Challenge 2021. We'll run, ride, paddle and navigate our way through the bush, over mountains and up rivers to complete the course.

Over 2 days we'll cover more than 100km!!

Its going to be tough but the effort will all be worth it so that kids in need can break the poverty cycle.

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.

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

Plus your support will also help to keep us going until we reach that finish line!

Thanks for your support (and wish us luck!)

So far this year I helped provide
