Challenge Yourself to Fight Cancer

Chances are you've seen cancer affect someone close to you. Set yourself an inspired cycling or triathlon challenge and feel the spirit, find yourself and fund a cure.

Smiling for Smiddy honours the memory of Adam Smiddy, who passed away to an aggressive cancer in 2006 aged just 26. More than $4 million has been raised for cancer research and support services since.
Great mates Adam Smiddy and Mark 'Sharky' Smoothy loved to ride and often talked about doing a credit card ride - riding for a few days in one direction with nothing more than a credit card then catching a bus home. That dream was never realised. Soon after Adam passed away Mark and two friends cycled 1600kms from Brisbane to Townsville, where Adam's parents lived, as a tribute to Adam. The rest, as they say, is history!
On 6 August 2006 Adam Smiddy passed away after a short battle against an aggressive melanoma. Adam was just 26 and in the prime of his life.

Adam's last name, Smiddy, is what all his friends affectionately called him. Smiddy was a talented triathlete and respected physiotherapist. He loved life with a passion and he loved his family and friends more.
