My Message

In August 2019 I’ll be cycling 1600 km from Townsville to Brisbane as part of the Bottlemart Smiddy Challenge. That’s nine days in the saddle (I know, I’m sore just thinking about it).

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Because I’m committed to the long, hard road to fight cancer. When Adam Smiddy was a second year Physiotherapy student at The University of Queensland in 1998, he was enrolled in my anatomy course and was awarded a grade of "7" (High Distinction), which was a common grade for Adam, especially in the Biomedical Sciences. While at UQ, Adam stayed at King's College (1997-2001) where I attended 1969-71.

I am very impressed by the positive contribution Adam has made to so many people and wonder how much he could have achieved if his melanoma had not cut his life short at 26?

As part of my challenge I’m aiming to raise $5000 to support the work of Mater Research—Mater’s world-class research institute that’s investing in some game-changing work into the causes, treatment and prevention of cancer.

And this is where I need your help.

Together, we can help to give more families more time together; to make more memories. 

Will you support my fundraising by making a donation to my fundraising page today?

Stay safe in the saddle Vaughan. Those Townsville drivers are fierce kamikazes! Count me in for $100. Where do I send the brown paper bag?
