Great Ocean Road Half Marathon 2019

#TEAMLYD

My great friend, Lydia Carfrae is taking on the fight against stage IV glioblastoma brain cancer. An indiscriminate cancer that needs to be beaten.

#TeamLYD , started by Lyd’s husband Stu and sister Caz, has pulled together all corners of the globe to support Lyd, raise awareness and to raise money to fight and beat GBM brain tumours. This is my part to support the fight and raise funds to go to much needed cancer research. 

 Asking all friends, family, colleagues and good people to dig deep with generosity; whether it be financial, advice to get me through the 23km (its an ultra half) or a kind word.

 All funds going to beating cancer.

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 $20,000,000 to invest in 158 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!
