Premium Charity Partner - Smiling for Smiddy
Take on Noosa Triathlon as part of Team Smiddy!
Mater Foundation’s Smiling for Smiddy program has been the Noosa Triathlon premium charity partner since 2010 and to date, more than $1.3 million has been raised from Team Smiddy triathletes for cancer research at Mater.
Smiling for Smiddy was launched in memory of Adam Smiddy who passed away to an aggressive cancer aged 26. What started as a humble memorial ride for a mate has grown to a series of cycling and triathlon challenges. Since 2006, Mater Foundation’s Smiling for Smiddy program has grown to encompass more than 2,400 athletes, 53 events and raised more than $8 million.
Limited places will be available for 2020 – make your experience about more than just the finish line, plus access exclusive Team Smiddy perks for both you and your family. We challenge you to run for a cause and be part of the Smiling for Smiddy VIP Noosa Triathlon experience.More
You might also like to commit to a little training to get you through the 1.5 km swim, 40 km cycle and 10 km run! The Smiling for Smiddy team will be hosting training sessions and information evenings in the lead up to the event to help get you there!
Best of all is the extra sense of achievement of crossing the finish line knowing you have contributed to a higher goal by raising funds for game changing cancer research at Mater.
Join hundreds of other athletes who have made Noosa Tri about more than the finish line and experience the unique 'Smiddy spirit'.

Many of us have been affected by anxiety or depression, either personally or through family, friends or colleagues. Right now, over 1 million people in Australia are experiencing depression and 2 million are experiencing anxiety. On average, eight people take their own lives every day in Australia.
Beyond Blue’s vision is for all people in Australia to achieve their best possible mental health. The funds and awareness raised from the Noosa Triathlon will help us enormously as we work to support people to protect their mental health and to recover when they are unwell, reduce people’s experiences of stigma and discrimination, and improve people’s opportunities to get effective support and services at the right time.
With your support, we will continue to innovate and deliver new services and programs, distribute free information resources and share powerful stories of hope and recovery across Australia, fund world-leading research, roll out evidence-based campaigns and advocate for all people in Australia affected by anxiety, depression and suicide.
MADDIE RIEWOLDT'S VISION
Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision was established in June 2015 to find a cure for Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes. Maddie Riewoldt lost a five year battle to a type of Bone Marrow Failure called Aplastic Anaemia. We work closely with a number of partners and sporting communities across the year to fundraise to support innovative medical research. Our aim is to find more successful, less toxic treatments, that save young Australian lives. Bone Marrow Failure claims the life of 50% of the young people affected and we want to change this.

Our support is a commitment for life, because there is no known cure. People with congenital heart disease face unique challenges for their entire life. Did you know 8 babies a day are born with the disease, which means over 3,000 families are thrown into turmoil each year? Our aim is to help all of them - and their families - to lead the most fulfilling life possible and to reach their personal goals.
We are the voice for all people impacted by congenital heart disease – one of the largest causes of infant death in Australia. We also provide dedicated support services and information for parents, young people, adults and Heart Angel (bereaved) families to provide guidance and support through the lifetime journey.
Funds raised from the Noosa Triathlon will help continue our support programs as well as funding research into the cause and cure for CHD.
Cystic Fibrosis Queensland
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a degenerative condition that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. It is a chronic, lifelong, progressive and life-shortening disease. There is no cure.
Team CF needs warriors like you to join the fight to breathe! Participate in the 2020 Noosa Triathlon to help raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. We have 25 spots available and ask that you commit to raising $1,500. All funds raised will go towards providing support, services and hope for people living with cystic fibrosis.
The average life span of a person born today with CF is less than 40 years. Most people do not live past their twenties. Just to survive, people living with cystic fibrosis endure a daily regimen of medication and physiotherapy. However, as the disease progresses, patients face more intensive medication regimens, more rigorous daily therapies and more frequent hospitalisations. Both the disease and the treatment regimens affect patients’ quality of life.
Cystic Fibrosis Queensland is the peak community not for profit charity working with and for the increasing number of people living with cystic fibrosis who attend a Queensland Health clinic for treatment. We advocate for the entire cystic fibrosis community and seek to raise much needed awareness of this debilitating condition - 90% of our income relies on fundraising. We focus on improving the quality of life for all lives affected by cystic fibrosis. Our community care improves our members’ overall health and sense of well-being in a bid to reduce both the number of hospital visits undertaken per year and the length of stay of each visit.
Make-A-Wish® Australia creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We work in partnership with sick kids, their families and medical teams to deliver unforgettable wish experiences – like making unicorns fly, sending kids to the moon and even helping Australia’s youngest cricket captain don the baggy green.
Make-A-Wish has 50 spots at the 2020 Noosa triathlon and we want you on our team!Read more
We believe wishes complement a child’s medical treatment, with the power to calm, distract and inspire at the time they need it most and our vision is to grant the wish of every eligible child.
To secure your spot we ask that Team Wish participants raise a minimum of $1500 and in return you’ll get:
- An exclusive Make-A-Wish tri-suit designed by Scody
- Dedicated fundraising coordinator
- Post event BBQ
- Charity hero medal
- Name on your race bib
