How your support helps

Since 1993, Around the Bay- Ride for a child in need has supported The Smith Family in raising funds to help children in need to break the cycle of disadvantage through education.

For 1 in 10 Australian children growing up in disadvantage, it can limit their choices, opportunities and outcomes in life. Investing in their education delivers long-term positive benefits for them, their family and potentially generations to come.
All funds raised by Around the Bay riders will help to provide these children with practical essentials like school books, shoes, bags, uniforms and the support they need to keep up at school and realise their full potential.

      About The Smith Family

      The Smith Family is a leading children’s education charity helping disadvantaged young Australians to succeed at school, so they can create better futures for themselves.

      When families are experiencing financial disadvantage, children can fall behind in their learning, leaving them more vulnerable to experiencing hardship themselves later in life.
      Extra support with their education empowers a disadvantaged child to change their life.
