London Marathon 2020

I will run in Noosa but train with the London marathoners.

1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. 

So I asked myself, “what can I do to help?” That’s where the Can Too Foundation came in! I joined Can Too in February 2016 and trained for 14 weeks to run my first half marathon in Sydney. I was overwhelmed and so happy about this achievement that I signed up for the next half marathon a couple of months later and I havent stopped. In the meantime I have completed 12 half marathons.

2 years ago my younger sister Caroline lost her life to lymphoma and my determination to raise money for cancer research and running is stronger than ever and therefore I decided to train for a full marathon!  

In return, I am raising valuable funds that go towards innovation in the prevention, care, and control of cancer. Since 2005, Can Too Foundation have trained over 15,000 participants, raised over $21,000,000 to invest in 168 one-year cancer research grants.

It would be fantastic if you could sponsor me - I am very greatful and also very proud to be part of the Can Too Foundation family!

Thank you for your support!
