Why fundraise?

One in 10 children in Australia grow up in a financially disadvantaged family. Without the proper tools for their education, these children can fall behind and lose hope of a better future.

This year The Smith Family aims to raise $1,200,000 which will support 2,100 primary school children in need with educational essentials such as school books, school bags, uniforms and shoes for one whole year, so they can break the cycle of disadvantage.

How can I help?

Your online fundraising page will be automatically created for you as soon as you register for the event.

It's important to know that your entry fee goes to support Bicycle Network to improving road conditions for all riders. To help children in need, The Smith Family needs you to get fundraising for your ride on Sunday 8 October.
