Register for the 2022 Smiddy Fun Run here
The Smiddy Fun Run is an event held in honour of Adam Smiddy who was just 26 years old when he died, only 6 months after being diagnosed with a malignant melanoma.
Adam passed away on 6th August 2006 after only 8 days in hospital. Adam was a keen triathlete and runner and a dedicated physiotherapist at the PA Hospital.
As a way for staff to celebrate and remember Adam through something he loved doing, the Physiotherapy Department organised a fun run a few months later to coincide with his birthday on the 7th November.
Since then, the Smiddy Fun Run has taken place every year (both on site and virtually) during National Skin Cancer Action Week (21st - 27th November) to help raise funds and awareness for skin cancer research at the PA and has raised over $150,000.
Join us in honouring Adam Smiddy and support skin cancer research at the PA Campus by signing up for the Smiddy Fun Run. You can sign up here
