Can Too is a non-profit program that matches fitness incentives with a good cause! Beginners and experienced athletes alike are given professional coaching as part of a team to swim long and short distance events. In return, participants raise sponsorship dollars that go towards funding Australian scientists working in cancer research through Cure Cancer Australia and Cancer Council NSW.
Can Too Swimmers train for their goals in a fun, safe and supportive environment. We will not only provide your training schedule but throughout the program, experts give information about nutrition, gear, injury prevention and race strategy.
Being part of the Can Too Team gives you:
A registration fee is required upon joining a program, the amount is dependant on the length of the program. Each Can Too participant must enter their goal event/s at their own expense. Details about how to register as part of our team are sent to you during the program.
In return for the professional coaching, we will be asking you to pledge to fundraise for cancer research.
Don't be nervous about achieving your fundraising goal! We create a dedicated online fundraising page for you to personalise and send out to your supporters. You can make videos, set up a gallery of photos or create a blog.
You will be provided with a Can Too fundraising booklet on the first night of training that has many great ideas and suggestions to help you word an effective email to send to your sponsors as well as creative ways to go about your fundraising campaign.
The Can Too training program is professionally based and structured to ensure that people of all levels of fitness and experience – from novices to seasoned athletes – are well prepared to achieve their personal goal in their chosen goal event.
The coaches are motivational and the journey is addictive as members develop new skills, make friends, share experiences and have fun. The team environment is a vital component in helping you to feel motivated, inspired and supported.
You Can Too!
