Balmoral 1km Swim 2020

Support me while I swim to support cancer research

Two years' ago I lost one of my closest friends to bowel cancer. Friends from school days, Sarah was warm, loving, generous and a wonderful friend. Her smile lit up a room. She loved her family fiercely. Her memory will never be forgotten, it lives within all of us who had the privilege of calling her friend.

I miss Sarah very much. To honour her memory I have signed up to a 1km open water ocean swim on Sunday 5 April with Can Too Foundation. 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.

Let's be honest - I am not the best swimmer, and the thought of swiming 1km in the ocean with fish (and sharks!) scares me. But I am doing this to raise money so that one day there will be a cure for cancer so people like my beautiful friend Sarah will not leave this world prematurely. 

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!
