Swim for Life

Sydney 2km+ Ocean Swim 2021

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 16,000 participants, raised over $22,500,000 to invest in 182 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!

1Km Bondi Roughwater Swim

Tuesday 9th Feb
the water was glassily smooth for this lovely roughwater swim. However it was still quite a good workout, as we swam right out from North Bondi SLSC. I made it in 25 mins, which put me at 144 out of 185 swimmers. 

Palm Beach 1km Swim

Monday 8th Feb
Rough conditions for this Palm Beach swim on 31st January; I was dumped entering the waves. But I completed it in 20minutes, and 40 seconds!
