Cancer Council NSW would like to announce our new partnership with The Can Too Foundation.
The collaboration will involve the two charities working together to achieve allied mission objectives to help beat cancer and reduce the impact of the disease. Each year in NSW alone, more than 36, 600 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed – around 100 every day.
Cancer Council NSW CEO, Jim L’Estrange says of the partnership;
“The collaboration between Cancer Council NSW and The Can Too Foundation will see two like-minded organisations work together to achieve common goals.
“The initiative will involve a number of new events and opportunities with a focus on achieving our parallel mission objectives to reduce the impact of cancer in the community, through prevention, support and funding vital cancer research. We very much look forward to working with such a fantastic organisation”.
Together, the charities will develop and deliver new fundraising programs in the health and fitness space, engaging members of the community to take part in fitness events to encourage a healthy lifestyle and raise funds that will go towards cancer research.
Research has shown that one third of cancers are preventable through a healthy lifestyle including by being physically active every day, enjoying a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy body weight.
The new programs will aim at encouraging people to take up or maintain exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle to reduce their chances of being diagnosed with cancer.
Annie Crawford, Founder and Chair of The Can Too Foundation, is passionate about collaboration in the fundraising space, commenting;
“The Can Too Foundation is thrilled to be partnering with such a well loved and respected organisation. By bringing Can Too and Cancer Council NSW together we hope to amplify our mission of transforming lives through increased health and wellbeing. More and more people will have access to our training programs and enable us to beat cancer together by funding cancer researchers.”
