The Smiddy Fun Run helps to fund life-saving skin cancer research at the PA Hospital Campus.
This annual event is held in memory of former PA Hospital physiotherapist Adam Smiddy, whose life was cut short at 26 years old by an aggressive melanoma in 2006.
Over 200 staff and members of the community come together annually in memory of Adam for this event and have raised over $60, 000 for skin cancer research.
Research based at the PAH Campus:
Professor Ian Frazer, the creator of the world's first cancer vaccine and well renowned dermatologist Professor Peter Soyer are leading the way with their collaborative skin cancer studies. Significant research being undertaken at the Princess Alexandra Hospital Campus includes:
- A study which aims to test whether a virus infection on the skin contributes to the risk of developing skin cancer and also to test if the ability to mount an immune response also contributes to the risk of developing skin cancer
- Investigating the treatment for surgically inoperable Stage II and III melanoma
- Trying to uncover regulatory elements that play significant roles in the inherited predisposition to psoriasis
- Studying the connection between kidney transplant patients and the increase in skin cancers
- Identifying the elements and timing of morphological changes associated with the transformation from naevus (moles) to melanoma and to identify the life cycle characteristics of a normal naevus
- Looking into how to improve drug therapy, predicting which patients will respond to therapy and how more patients can be made to respond to therapy

Support People With Parkinson's Disease;
It's Time To Get Moving
It’s time to put your name down for one of the most fun events of the year that supports a good cause.
A Walk in the Park is aimed at celebrating and supporting people with Parkinson’s and other movement disorders.
Over 17,000 people in Queensland have been diagnosed with Parkinsons, but it also affects carers, spouses, family and friends, as well as health care providers.
Parkinson’s Queensland is the peak not-for-profit organisation that provides support, education and research for the Parkinson’s community. A Walk in the Park raises awareness and funds to help Parkinson’s Queensland deliver support programs and services to people with Parkinson’s.
A Walk in the Park is not about your fitness level or ability – it’s about the importance of staying active and supporting people living with Parkinson’s in Queensland.
What better way to Get Moving than by spending a fun day in New Farm Park, with a stroll along the beautiful Brisbane River. There will be live music, fun activities for the kids, along with food stall and sponsor marquees. It’s a great way to catch up with family and friends and even meet some new people. So get your most stylish fitness clothes on, get active, and enjoy the day.
A Walk in the Park
New Farm Park, Brisbane
Sunday 13 September

Support Young Women Through Teen Challenge;
Sara Crave supports Teen Challenge, to raise much needed funds which go towards providing temporary crisis accommodation for young women. Sara Crave is delighted to be able to contribute towards the success of the Teen Challenge events, in support of the important work which Teen Challenge caries out throughout the community.
For forty-two years Teen Challenge Qld has provided support services to young men and women aged sixteen to twenty-nine years. Our services focus on recovery from alcohol and drug dependency and associated life controlling issues such as homelessness, mental illness, criminal delinquency, eating disorders, self-harm and abuse. Services include crisis accommodation, residential rehabilitation, family support, and drug and alcohol information seminars conducted in schools and organisations throughout southeast Queensland.
The Emerge Fashion Event is the annual signature Toowoomba fundraising event to support the New Life Women's Centre in Toowoomba. Hosted by Teen Challenge Qld, this event will once again be held at Toowoomba's premier shopping complex, Grand Central Shopping Centre.
On the evening of Saturday September 7 the catwalk will come alive with seasoned professional models. See the latest in seasonal fashion combined with the unique European parade stylising of highly regarded Designer and Fashion Expert, Carolyn Taylor Smith.
There's a complimentary gift bag for every guest, a live auction with some great get-away packages up for grabs, a silent auction with some prize pickings and every guest is invited to our Soirée with delicious refreshments after the show (included in the price).
The New Life Women’s Centre focuses on young women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction, eating disorders, depression, issues of suicide, self-harm, homelessness, and many other life controlling issues. Unfortunately there are not enough beds for young women in Queensland who require residential help, so our facility in Toowoomba is in great demand.
By purchasing an event ticket you will be helping to provide an opportunity for us to raise much needed funds to continue the vital work that we do. Secure your seat today and help give young women a second chance at life.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.teenchallengeqld.org.au, from the Grand Central Information Desk (cash only) or by phoning Teen Challenge (07)3422 1500.
