Giving cancer a run for its money - I'm training with Can Too for the Great Ocean Road Half Marathon!
I have loved running ever since I was a kid running around the athletics oval; however I gave the sport away in my 20's. I first signed up to Cantoo's training program to run the Sydney Half Marathon on 2006, really only because my friend did, and thought there was no way I would be able to run 1km! But I did run that 1km, and many more over the next ten years. With the help of Cantoo and I rediscovered my love of running; the comradery and sense of achievement that is brings.
Whilst I thought the program would get me fit, I never anticipated I would get so much more than that in witnessing the passion, energy and focus of Cantoo to help beat cancer. We have all lost someone near and dear to cancer and Cantoo has raised over $17 million dollars for cancer research - it specifically chooses early career cancer and major cancer research projects and funds young, innovative and brilliant minds who are piece by piece finding ways of controlling and curing this terrible disease. Cantoo works with the National Health and Medical Research Council and Cure Cancer Australia to select projects and researchers each year to receive its funding. This year Cantoo is raising money for a broad range of projects researching skin, pancreatic, stomach and bowel cancer (to name a few).
Help me give cancer a run for its money and sponsor me to sweat it out on all those hills on the Great Ocean Road on 21 May 2017.
A big thank you to My Sponsors
The real heroes who are kindly supporting me achieve my goal.
