The Allsports Physiotherapy Group is proud to support the following organisations as their preferred charitable associations. While each Allsports clinic forges a close relationship within the communities in which they provide services and supports a range of additional charities and community groups in their local area, the group as a whole is able to direct a greater number of resources to the charities below. As an organisation we are happy to assist local clubs and community groups.
Smiling for Smiddy
Smiling for Smiddy fundraising events honour the memory of Adam Smiddy, a Brisbane Physiotherapist who passed away to an aggressive cancer in 2006 aged just 26. Since 2006, more than $5 million has been raised for cancer research and support services.
In 2015, Allsports founded the Adam Smiddy Memorial 4th Year Clinical Placement Scholarship. This initiative sponsors a 4th year Physiotherapy student from the University of Queensland to travel as a member of the Smiddy support crew, along with a senior therapist from the Allsports Group, on the gruelling eight day, 1600 kilometre Smiling for Smiddy ride to Townsville.
Allsports Physiotherapy also provides services at many of the Smiling for Smiddy events including a treatment team for athletes at the Noosa Triathlon each year. We have been privileged to work with the Smiddy group and their amazing athletes and look forward to continuing this strong alliance into the future. For more information, visit Smiling for Smiddy.
