Thank you and congratulations to all participants in this year's Balmoral 5km Swim program.
Our swimmers were faced with endless challenges causing disruption to the original training program. Unprecedented rain and stormy weather prevented ocean training sessions from being held safely.
Fortunately, Can Too were able to secure pool lanes for training when ocean sessions were not possible, due to risks to health or safety.
Despite the cancellation of the Balmoral 5km Ocean Swim event due to polluted and unsafe water conditions. A plan was put into action for the Balmoral Swimmers to participate in a 5km swim at Lane Cove Aquatic Centre.
Luckily, the sun was shining with not a single cloud in the sky. The Can Too spirit was high and alive, with everyone smiling and empowered for their swim.
Acting CEO Gary Trenaman and Board Member Barbara King were present to support and celebrate our incredible 5km swimmers.
It was an inspiring day to finish off the program.
Coaches Nikki Piha and Tim Collins made sure the event was as special as possible, preparing personalised gift bags for everyone and make-believe timing chips!
The Balmoral 5km program may not have gone entirely to plan, but the resilience of our participants and agility of Coaches and Can Too staff ensured health, fitness and fundraising goals were still met, all while having a great time with fantastic friends.
