Can Too Foundation is an independent health promotion charity committed to funding cancer research.
We offer professionally coached training programs using qualified and experienced coaches. Can Too train all levels, from beginners to those more experienced, in structured training programs tailored to specific physical challenges such as run, ocean swim, triathlon or choral singing events.
Programs range from entry level distances such as 7km, 10km and 14km run programs and 1km ocean swims, to intermediate programs like sprint triathlons and half marathons, through to advanced programs such as marathons and trail runs.
In return for professionally coached training programs, our participants fundraise much-needed support for Australian cancer research to fund the most brilliant, innovative early career cancer researchers.
At Can Too, we believe everyone can achieve goals they once thought impossible. We believe life is what you make of it, that anything is possible, and if you’re willing to take that first step, you CAN TOO!
Our vision is transforming lives – through improving health and wellbeing in the community and supporting the research, prevention, care and control of cancer.
To deliver on our vision, the Can Too Foundation invests in two things:
Our mission is to engage and inspire individuals and the community to achieve personal health, wellbeing and altruistic goals.
Professionally coached programs promote healthy lifestyles and aid in reducing the risk of one-third of cancers which are lifestyle-related.
Our mission is to enable and assist fundraising to support innovation in the prevention, care and control of cancer.
Fundraising commitments foster a culture of philanthropy and mutual support where all our participants are passionate about giving back.
We Believe We're Stronger Together.

Where Does the Money Go?
Cancer Research & Health Promotion
We see our mission as a social partnership, working on a leveraging model — which you can read more about here. We support members of the community to face physical challenges and fundraise, so that we can invest back into the community, through cancer prevention and cancer research.
We're 100% community-funded, which means we're 100% careful with every single dollar we spend.
So where does my fundraising go?
Since becoming an independent charity in 2014 we’ve invested:
- 80% of your fundraising in cancer research
- 20% of your fundraising in cancer prevention / health promotion.
We spend 100% of your fundraising on Can Too's charitable purposes.
Additional costs of health promotion and administration are covered thanks to the generosity of Principal Supporter Macquarie Group Foundation, our partners and pod sponsors, detailed in our annual reports.
We are always looking for ways to ways to improve this and deliver even stronger value for our community.
