Sponsors and partners

Official Charity Partner - 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. Children cannot choose the circumstances they are born into.

Today, one in seven Australian children and young people are living in poverty, where even life's basics are hard to come by. Your team’s fundraising support will help these children access the essentials they need such as school books, school bags, a uniform and the tools and support they need to thrive at school, so they can break the cycle of poverty.

Your team and individual fundraising page is automatically created for you as soon as you register! Log on to aroundthebayfundraising.com.au, personalize your page, send it around and get supported for kids! You can also battle it out for top spot on the fundraising leaderboard with other organisations in your industry through the Around the Bay fundraising Industry Challenge.

So, get your work, friends and family on board to sponsor your team in Around the Bay and you can truly ride for a child in need. I’m here to help so please contact me with any fundraising enquiries. Thanks for your support and see you at the finish line!
