I'm training with Can Too for the Great Ocean Road (23km) Half Marathon!

Since 2005 Can Too has trained more than 10,500 people to swimming and running glory and raised more than $15 million for cancer research. Last year, after spending 2 years enjoying Sydney's food and wine scene, and making great friends with my best mate (the couch), I bit the bullet and signed up to train for the 2016 Blackmore’s half marathon anyway, telling myself that even if I couldn’t finish the race, the fundraising I was doing still had the potential to make an incredible impact.

Training kicked off in June of last year, I was nervous as anything, and as it poured with rain on our first distance run (gotta love the Sydney weather!), I couldn't help but think of my Aunty Janet who lost her battle with cancer in 2011. Through her fight with cancer she always said that "life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain". I drew motivation from this, went on to finish my first half marathon, and, with the support of my friends and family raise just under $2,500 for cancer research. I’m super proud of the money that I’ve raised so far, but, since cancer doesn't rest neither can I. 

Too many of us have lost too many fantastic people to this awful disease, so we're running and fundraising in the hopes that one day there will be a cure. It's a little step to fight big disease that affects 1 in 2 Australian men and 1 in 3 Australian women by age 85. If you’d like to show your support, you can donate on this page. All money raised on my page goes directly to the Can Too Foundation to hopefully change the face of cancer outcomes for everyone.

Your support means the world to me, but it’s also important to the government, so much so that they’ve made it tax deductible - so don’t forget to print your receipt!

I'm training with Can Too for the Great Ocean Road (23km) Half Marathon!

Posted by Kirby, Tuesday 14th Feb

I am training for an event with Can Too, a health promotion organisation that engages and inspires individuals and the community to achieve personal health, wellbeing and altruistic goals.
 
Beginners and experienced athletes alike are given professional coaching as part of a team to run or swim in endurance events- including 10km, half-marathon and marathon runs; as well as ocean swims and triathlons.
 
In return, I am raising valuable funds that go towards innovation in the prevention, care and control of cancer. In 2016, our Can Too community has supported 12 early career researchers through Cure Cancer Australia and Cancer Council NSW.

Thank you for supporting me!
 
‘It’s so much fun and I can’t believe I’m going to achieve this goal that I never thought possible. A great program and team support is making it possible. You Can Too!’

A big thank you to My Sponsors

The real heroes who are kindly supporting me achieve my goal.
