Sydney 1km Ocean Swim 2020

Ocean Swimming to Raise Funds for Can Too

Cancer is a matter close to my heart. Caring for someone undergoing chemotherapy treatment was one of the most difficult and challenging things I have ever done in my life.

1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. A statistic, that is shocking. Most of us know at least someone in our famlies and social cirles who has been diagnosed, been treated or suffered from cancer. So, I asked myself, what I can do to support those that have to fight cancer?

I have joined CAN TOO, a foundation committed to funding cancer research. Growing up in Germany and mainly on stable grounds, I never learnt how to Freestyle swim, so I decided to take the plunge and signed up to do a 1km OCEAN SWIM in January 2020!!!

Facing my fear of waves and learning a new life skill has been very rewarding knowing that for participating in this professionally coached training program I am in return raising funds that go towards innovation in the prevention, care, and control of cancer.

Even if it's just a small donation, it would be fantastic if you could sponsor me and give support to people battling against cancer.


Thank you for your donation!!!
