The Smith Family
The Smith Family is the official charity partner of the Corporate Triathlon series and by taking part, you can help Australian children in need. Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 to help provide life changing support to 160 children for a whole year!
All funds raised will provide practical items like school books and other resources, as well as mentors to help with homework and emotional support.
Start fundraising today and show your support for children in need!
Did you know that 1.1million children and young people are living in poverty across Australia? That’s just 1 in 6 children that are living without the basics to get them through school. These children need financial help for schooling essentials like books, school shoes, the right uniform and excursions. Disadvantaged children are much more likely to struggle at school than their classmates so they need extra support with their learning.
Your fundraising will support children through The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program. This program provides support to disadvantaged children through:
- financial support to pay for school essentials like a school uniform, shoes, textbooks and excursions.
- support from a Learning for LifeCoordinator who works with the family and understands the specific needs of a child.
- access to The Smith Family’s out-of-school learning and mentoring programs to help children get the most out of their school years.
More than 38,000 students are supported each year on the Learning for Life program, in 94 communities across every Australian state and territory.
Not only will you and your team be helping to break the cycle of poverty in Australia, you’ll also receive a range of benefits too!
- Teams that fundraise and reach their goal get the option to use the Platinum Upgrade Package which entitles them to upgrade their purchased marquees with lots of great extras! These include reserved carparks, private bathroom, showers, drinks and personal masseuse.
