I'm training with Can Too for the Air NZ Queenstown Marathon!
1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. This means that potentially someone we love may have to battle cancer, and that’s a statistic that needs to change.
So I asked myself, “what can I do to help?”, and that’s where Can Too came in. Can Too provide professionally coached training programs for participants – of any fitness level – to run, swim and cycle their way to a healthier lifestyle and a cancer-free world.
In return, I am raising valuable funds that go towards innovation in the prevention, care, and control of cancer. Since 2005, Can Too have trained over 13,500 participants, raised over 18,000,000 to support 147 one-year cancer research grants through Cure Cancer Australia and Cancer Council NSW.
It would be fantastic if you could sponsor me, or even better join me in a program!
Thank you for your support!

I'm training with Can Too for the Queenstown Marathon!
Posted by Amanda, Monday 29th May
I hear you say "I thought you'd never do another marathon?" ... so why ??
So many reasons, but the reality is:
- because I can and for those who can't
- because it reduces my personal risk of cancer by keeping fit and healthy
- because Queenstown is beautiful (apparently!)
- because I'll be raising money to fund brilliant scientists into early research into finding a cure
- because Can Too is a great organisation providing professional coaching and suppor
Anyway, here we go again! Let's do it!
Go Can Too!
A big thank you to My Sponsors
The real heroes who are kindly supporting me achieve my goal.
