Message from the CEO: February 2017

by Susannah Miall 22 Feb 2017

To the Can Too community,

In the past two weeks over 700 Can Tooers have been starting or finishing their training with Can Too!!! Our Sydney Ocean Swim participants embraced their goal events and the beautiful conditions offered up at our Palm to Whale Beach and North Bondi Classic. Together our fearless ocean swimmers and to date have raised just under $400,000!

Our programs training for Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon and the Great Ocean Road Running Festival have started in Melbourne and Sydney — with registrations still open!

Our amazing Great Ocean Road Marathoners and Olympic and Sprint Triathletes have pushed through some HOT days to remain focussed on their goals. If you are in Brisbane its almost time for Gold Coast Half Marathon training to kick off and we would love to see you.

Thank you to all our community, staff, volunteers and supporters that enable Can Too to thrive. Your support of the program and at event days is changing lives and leaving a legacy of investment into cancer research that continues long after the finish line is crossed. This generous engagement from you — our participants, our supporters and our donors — means we continue to witness incredible transformations in both physical and mental health while at the same time investing in research. This investment and our impact is outlined in our first Annual Report and we hope you take the time to review and I thank you for the contribution you have made to Can Too.

Can Too relies on corporate support and investment to fund our program and we are excited to announce our new collaborative partnership with Air New Zealand! We are delighted to be offering our first goal event in Queenstown in November with an information night hosted at Air New Zealand on Thursday 9 March. It's limited spaces so register your interest here! We can not do what we do without investment and please get in touch if you think you or your organisation may be able to help please contact me on

Finally, so many of you have shared in Annie Crawford’s story and been inspired by Can Too and this month sees the release of Annie’s book The Annie Effect … maybe a little of the inspiration you need to know that together we are all making a difference!! 

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

Yours in fun, fitness, friends, and fundraising,

Susannah Miall
