I'm supporting cancer research and prevention with Can Too Foundation.
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?” That’s where the Can Too Foundation 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 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, or even better join me in a program!
Thank you for your support!

A huge thanks to the organisers of this swim! Such a caring bunch of swimmers (that all swim 6 km faster than me), was a pleasure to be part of this event. Grabbed a picture with these wonderful ladies that helpd to make this a great morning. Thanks to everyone on water safety who patiently waited for me to finish.

Last week my swim buddies headed off to meet their goal! I am so proud of them. I am stuck at work but my students need me (I hope!). I need to dig deep now and be inspired that their goal swim is done!
Podless, I search out a swim and head down to Coogee, made it out and back twice to Wedding Cake Island.

Saturdays just got better.......Monday 21st Oct
The Sunday arvo sessions at Victoria Park Pool all done, time to smash out the distance swims at Balmoral! The buoys come out and its time for 'Balmoral Laps'. Then for the next few weeks we increase our distance. I'm beginning to think yep..... I can do thisShare
Thursday nights at Cook Phillip Park PoolThursday 3rd Oct
After a long day at work it's a bit of a challenge to head down to the city for a swim - but you know it's worth it when you see the orange and black crowd gathered around the pool.
Wondering whether I can do this - but always end up getting the laps done and feel so much better afterwards!
Us ladies are up to a good 3.1 km workout in the pool, or as Ros puts it 'ah that's 4 km' and we have a laugh.
Thank you to my Sponsors
