Join a fun local community and support a good cause

I’ve always looked forward to Can Too training runs, a chat and a laugh with everyone, I really like the people.

We're all of varying abilities and no one feels left out with Can Too. Team Captains make sure everyone has a good time out on the trail runs, everyone is celebrated when they finish a training run, and breakfast together afterwards is a great start to the weekend.

You get this massive sense of achievement every time you strap on your shoes and that’s an awesome motivator to keep trying.

Matt, Trail Runner

 Ask A Question 

You are what funds research

... the most frequent questions.

Do I have to fundraise?

Yes, you have to fundraise in return for your 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 9 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 16 years. We know that if you put your mind to it and work hard you CAN TOO help fund Australia's most promising cancer research projects.

You have until 30 days after your goal race to meet your commitment, and we continue working with you until options are exhausted.

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!

What is bronze level fundraising? 

By raising $895 you will meet your minimum fundraising commitment and become a Fundraising Star.

If you go above and beyond, you could become a Silver Fundraising Star ($1100) or even a Gold Fundraising Star ($1350)

Get the skills and experience to become a confident trail runner

I encourage people to embrace the process and appreciate where you are. Trail running is a totally different environment to what you’d normally be in.

I like taking people to places that they never thought possible in terms of building confidence, ability and fitness, getting them to do things they didn’t think they could.

My favourite part of coaching the Can Too community is getting the group to connect, as running is often done solo. 

I’m inspired by people who aren’t naturals yet with hard work and grit achieve amazing things.
