Message from the CEO: January 2017

by Susannah Miall 18 Jan 2017

The anticipation of what a New Year can offer often creates pressure to set goals or resolutions, and too often we see them fail.

The proven success in achieving your goals is making them SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely … and getting the right support along the way.

Since 2005 Can Too participants have shown that success in reaching both fitness and fundraising goals comes from a step-by-step approach. Start small, aim big, and never give up. Best of all – we’ve done all the hard work for you.

Can Too always trains for a specific event like Great Ocean Road Running Festival, SMH Half Marathon, or Gold Coast Airport Marathon.

We provide a day-by-day training program and hold benchmark nights (followed by dinner at the pub) to measure (and celebrate) your progress toward race day.

Trust that your goal really is achievable … even if you it doesn’t feel that way at the start! Since 2005 we’ve trained 13,500 people just like you to run/swim/ride their way to funding cancer research.

Our programs are realistic. We don’t expect you to be able to run a half marathon to be able to train for a half marathon. All you need to achieve at the first week of training is a 25 minute run/walk. We believe that if you believe in yourself, you can too!

Set yourself a goal that’s timely. Can Too’s training programs have a start date, and you’re all working toward the same race day together, celebrating the milestones along the way.

As we move into the new year full-swing Can Too’s vision continues to be:

“Transforming lives – through improving health and wellbeing in the community and supporting the research, prevention, care and control of cancer.”

Our goal is to provide 1,700+ people the opportunity to transform their own lives through improved health and wellbeing, and transforming the lives of others by raising enough funds to support our next 14+ cancer researchers in 2018!

Make your New Year’s Resolution one for getting (or staying) fit and funding Australian cancer research. Join our fundraising community and get professionally coached for:

Can Too provides this in an inspiring, structured program with the benefit of professional coaching and we hope that in 2017 we can help you turn your goal into a reality!

To our Can Too-funded cancer researchers, their goals may seem incredibly complex and challenging. However, it is through the fundraising dollars that the Can Too Community provides that they find much needed support and inspiration to continue delivering.

Thank you for your support.

In training with us, in signing up friends and family, in meeting your minimum fundraising commitments, in holding events, in giving back, in supporting others; you are making an incredible difference.

“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”
