Current Opportunities

Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity?

Volunteers play an integral role in the success of Can Too – much of our success over the past 10 years has been thanks to special individuals who have given their time, effort and enthusiasm to our cause.

Are you interested in becoming involved in Can Too, but don’t see yourself as a runner or swimmer? Maybe you have a partner or friend in a Can Too event? There are many other ways you can contribute with Can Too, towards raising funds to find a cure for cancer.

We are always looking for eager people to assist with:

  • Energy Champions
  • Race Day Volunteers
  • Office Administration
  • Massage Therapist
  • Guest Speakers

Volunteer — Energy Champions

We are always looking for volunteers to be “Energy Champions” on Saturday mornings. The success of Can Too would not be possible without the support of the many people who volunteer their time to help out with the run and swim programs.

The Can Too Energy Champion looks after the energy needs of the group and offer words of encouragement, along with clapping as Can Too’ers return from a distance run or a surf session. The Energy Champion assists with creating and maintaining a nurturing and supportive culture within Can Too.


  • Set up a “fuel” station before runners or swimmers return
  • Mind the Can Too swimmers bags
  • Hand out snacks and Powerade sports drinks at the end of the Saturday session to everybody on the team.
  • Offer words of encouragement at the end of the session and “check in” with people.
  • Assist with the purchase of Can Too Merchandise

Saturday run sessions:

The start time for the Saturday sessions is usually 7:30am – this session starts out being about an hour and then gets progressively longer as the runs increase. It would be a huge benefit to the group if the Energy Champion could position themselves along the course during these longer distances to provide moral support given that people are stretching themselves both physical and mentally!!!

Saturday surf sessions:

The start time for the Saturday beach sessions varies depending on the location – this session takes about an hour and a half.
If you are able to help out once a fortnight or once a month that would be fantastic and/or even if you could volunteer for the race day celebrations.

Volunteer — Massage Therapists

We are seeking volunteer massage therapists to treat the Can Too runners to a short massage for their tired and aching muscles after our goal running events. Can you help us by giving your time and services on the day – contributing back to the community and maybe it will also be an opportunity for you to build a new client base.
If you are able to help out our Can Tooers with a massage, please email

Volunteer — Office Administration

As part of Can Too we have volunteering opportunities to assist our Can Too Team with the preparation for the start and the graduation of the running and swimming training programs.

Here is a list of tasks that need to be carried out:

  • Collating Welcome and Graduation packs
  • Assembling Coaching, team Captains and Mentors packs
  • Marking Coaches, Team Captains and Mentors Manuals
  • Putting together Coaches and Team Captain Folders
  • Sorting Questionnaire and Evaluation sheets for each location

Since its inception in 2005 Can Too has raised over $16,000,000 providing vital seed funding to support young researchers with innovative ideas, enabling them to pursue projects that are the most promising in their potential to cure cancer.

None of this would have been possible without the valuable assistance of volunteers. What a wonderful opportunity to get together for a team effort – to be part of the Can Too spirit and help with the logistics of preparing for our training programs!
