The Smiley Reilly Project

Sunday, March 27th, 2022

‘Round the World for Reilly is the main fundraising event for The Smiley Reilly Project.

Each March, our ‘Round the World for Reilly campaign hopes to involve as many people as possible in as many different locations as possible around the globe. The day aims to provide people with an opportunity to reconnect with friends and family for some fun, love, sunshine, and laughter.

All money raised goes to The Smiley Reilly Project!

So, what do you actually do?

The choice is yours! You can choose to walk, run, stagger, ski, cycle or stroll in memory of Reilly. Random past events for RTW4R include a retro 80s aerobics class, a helicopter flight, a trek up Mt Kosciuszko, snow shovelling … you’re only limited by your imagination. We’ve had solitary walkers, large groups, and family events, in towns and cities, at the beach, in the desert, you name it. All we ask is that you dedicate some of your day to doing something in honour of Reilly and in recognition of the bereaved families that we support near and far. It doesn't have to be a big thing, you could even dedicate your daily walk to your local cafe to us! Each year Reilly’s mum and dad and his brothers, Flynn and Liam, join a group in Brisbane walking through the Botanic Gardens, and adding Brisbane to the ‘Round the World for Reilly map.

How 'Round the World for Reilly started.

In 2016, an invitation was put out to a small network of friends to join a fun run in Melbourne to honour Reilly, the son of Raquel and Jonathan Hall, lost to SIDS in February 2015. Within two weeks, people from all corners of the globe made a pledge to participate in a fun run to be held in their own part of the world on the same day. On March 20th, 2016 around 600 people took part, encompassing 67 different locations across 17 countries, making this a truly global event.

Registrations for ‘Round the World for Reilly 2022 are now open! Pin your spot on our RTW4R map by registering as an individual, family or business (businesses will appear on the map and also feature on our social media sites). You can also choose to join one of our pre-organised events (the list is below the map).
