Our very own Jonathan Rowley will be tackling The Smith Family Challenge this year in support of disadvantaged young Australians. Held over the 4th and 5th of March 2016, the challenge consists of a 100km off-road adventure, where teams of 4 trek by foot, bike and across water in the picturesque Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.
The Smith Family has set a target of $500,000 which if reached, will be a record breaking figure for the charity. Each contestant, including Jonathan, will personally contribute $2,000 to cover all costs of the event, meaning every cent that is donated goes directly to charity.
Since its introduction in 2008, The Smith Family Challenge has raised $2.6 Million for its “Learning for Life Program” which aims to help all disadvantaged young Australians with their education, empowering them to create a better future for themselves.
At the time of writing, Jonathan has already raised $2,800, but with a target of $10,000 for each participant, he’s going to need some help! If you’d like to contribute to this great cause, you can donate or sponsor Jonathan and his team “Quantium Originals”. Or if you’d like to join the challenge, you can register online.
