Over 100,000 Aussies are diagnosed each year and chances are either you or someone you know has been affected by Cancer.
Cancer is a destructive disease and attacks the body’s organs, cells and tissue, even your hope. It takes away everything and even impacts your loved ones.
- 1 in 2 men are diagnosed with cancer before the age 85
- 1 in 3 women are diagnosed with cancer before the age 85
The 4 major cancers Aussies suffer from are Prostate, Breast, Lungs, Melanoma and Bowel.
Why are we telling you this?
Well, many of us have seen the effects of cancer first hand, sometimes more than once, so in 2014 we ran our first promotion to help raise funds for the Smiling for Smiddy Foundation which supports cancer research.
Our goal was $1000 and we ended up raising $1500
In June 2017, we did it again and raised 1770!
Now we did it again in 2018 we raised $…. All thanks to YOU our customers!
We pledged to donate $5 from Selected Spanbilt Best Sellers
to support the Cause!
More about the ‘Smiling for Smiddy’ Charity
Smiling for Smiddy honors the memory of Adam Smiddy, who passed away from aggressive cancer in 2006.
After Adam passed, Mark ‘Sharky’ Smoothy, his best mate and riding partner, cycled from Brisbane to Townsville with a few friends, where Adam’s parents lived. They did this as a tribute to Adam and the love he had for cycling.
More than $7 million has been raised for cancer research and support services since.
To get involved you can join the fight too!
