Smiling for Smiddy

Held in memory of Adam Smiddy, who passed away to an aggressive cancer aged 26, Smiling for Smiddy delivers inspired challenge events which engage individuals and communities to raise funds for cancer research, the Smiddy way. Each year hundreds of cyclists and triathletes use a passion for their sport to fight this devastating disease. More than $6 million has been raised since 2006. Smiling for Smiddy supports cancer research that has national and international impact. Funds enable the dedicated team of researchers at Mater Research to undertake potentially life-saving research into the causes, prevention and improved treatments of cancer.
