Welcome to the Can Too Community! We’re a passionate group of fundraisers who’ve baked, BBQ’d and held brilliant events to raise over $25 million to better prevent, care and control cancer.
Can Too is a dual journey of fitness and fundraising so we’ve put together this webpage to make your fundraising experience a positive one.
Having trained over 18,000 participants to run, swim, bike and trek – we’ve got a few tips and tricks up our sleeve to help you meet your fundraising commitment.
Many of us are Can Too Tragics and after one or two programs it can be more difficult to raise your fundraising commitment by asking friends and family to donate.
Have you considered holding an event?
Events such as Bunnings BBQ's and movie nights can raise your fundraising commitment in one day/night!
Do you have a great fundraising idea for our community? Let us know in the form below.
Create Can Too inspired merchandise like clothing, towels or hats. Sell these in the Can Too Facebook Marketplace to other Can Tooers.
Just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for approval of the use of our logo.
Selling homemade products is a great way to kick start your fundraising e.g. candles, bath salts or baked goods. You can sell your products on the Can Too Facebook Marketplace or in person at your pod training.
Hold a trivia night with your friends and family. You could also hold a raffle at the same event to encourage extra donations.
Joining clothes swaps events is another unique way to raise funds for your program. Do this with a group of friends or other members of your pod to raise the money together.
Holding a barefoot bowls event is a fun way to gather your friends and family together to raise funds for Can Too.
One creative Can Tooer created orange dog bandanas to sell to Can Too participants and spectators for their fundraising.
Ask For Donations For Your Birthday
Use Facebook as a tool to run a birthday fundraiser instead of asking for gifts this year. Select Can Too as the charity you would like to support and we can allocate this to your fundraising page.
We have a great range of Can Too Facebook profile frames to help you promote your fitness and fundraising with your Facebook friends.
These are easy to add to your Facebook profile image and are an eye-catching way to show your support of the Can Too Foundation. You can also add a message and link to your fundraising page, in the ‘update your profile pic’ post.
Run a raffle as part of your fundraising for Can Too. Ask friends and family for donations of gifts but also reach out to businesses in your community to ask for donations of prizes for your raffle.
Play for Purpose is another great tool to utilise if you are considering setting up a raffle. Check out their website or reach out to us for more information.
Send an Email or Write a Blog About Your Story
