Future Goal Event Fund

I'm doing what?!

So, I’m going to swim. 1km.  In open water. Did I mention that I can’t really swim?

Slight exaggeration.  I can swim 50m...just.  And then hang on the side of the pool for a few minutes, gasping for breath.  I tend to find myself panicking when I swim, and the idea of open water terrifies me.

When you put it all together like that, it sounds like a odd choice to make.  But it’s 2020, so I’m not even sure what counts as odd anymore.

Seriously though, I really want to finally get over my fear of swimming, and being able to raise money for cancer research at the same time would be sweet sweet icing on the metaphorical cake.

That’s where the Can Too Foundation comes 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 16,000 participants, raised over $22,500,000 to invest in 182 one-year cancer research grants. 

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.

It would be fantastic if you could sponsor me, or even better join me in a program!

Thank you for your support!
