The Smith Family


For 25 years, Around the Bay riders have proudly supported The Smith Family in helping disadvantaged Australian children to succeed at school and create better futures for themselves.

1 in 7 Australian children are living in disadvantage, where even the basics are hard to come by. But through fundraising for your ride in Around the Bay, you are helping to break this cycle of disadvantage and change the lives of children in need.
