Ride for a child in need
Ride for a child in need

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

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