Do I have to fundraise?

Yes, you have to fundraise in return for your 14 week coached training program. Don’t let that worry you too much, we’ve been doing this since 2005 so we have plenty of resources available to help you achieve your fundraising goal. Plus, you’ll have a Team Captain and Mentor/s to guide you through. The best approach is to have a plan and to start early.

Where does the money go?

When you fundraise for Can Too Foundation, you're fundraising for Australian cancer research and prevention. We focus on investing in early career cancer researchers across all cancer types. Can Too Foundation funded 11 researchers in 2020 and are funding a further 11 researchers in 2021. As a registered charity, we will always be careful with every single dollar we spend and completely transparent in our reporting.

What if I don't meet my commitment?

Can Too has been teaching people to run and raise funds for cancer research for sixteen years. We know that you’ll do everything you can to fundraise for Australia's most promising cancer research projects and we’ll help you every step of the way. If, due to personal circumstances, you feel you can’t meet your commitment, please contact us. Participants who don’t contact us and do not meet their commitment will not be permitted to register for a future Can Too program.  

How long do I have to fundraise?

The good news is that you have until 30 days after your program finishes to meet your commitment to cancer research and prevention. You'll have an active fundraising page from the moment you sign up, so our suggestion is sign up early!
