I'm training with Can Too for Blackmores Sydney Running Festival Half 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 Blackmores Sydney Running Festival Half Marathon!

Posted by Tanya, Wednesday 17th May

Maybe it's because I have a birthday coming up or maybe it's just that I have lost my damn mind again but I've decided to train for another half-marathon!  I'm training for the Blackmore's half in September with Can Too, who inspired me 3 years ago to achieve the semingly impossible goal of running 21.1 kilometers.

As some of you know, I lost my mom to cancer 11 years ago, a dear friend during the middle of my last training and also had my own cancer scare which thankfully was caught in time. Cancer can happen to anyone and is scary, heartbreaking and can make you feel powerless.  I like to believe we all have the power though to make a difference and fight this terrible disease through supporting research to find a cure. 
So, in return for all the training (during the freezing cold winter) I will get to try and accomplish my second half-marathon, I am again raising money that will go towards innovation in the prevention, care and control of cancer. In January 2017, our Can Too community has supported 12 early career researchers through Cure Cancer Australia and two major research projects through Cancer Council NSW. 

Thank you for supporting me and remember, if I can...YOU CAN TOO!!!!

A big thank you to My Sponsors

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