Achievements

Annie Crawford (’80)

Established in 2014, the Can Too Foundation is an independent charity that is dedicated to funding cancer research through marathon running training. With Can Too, runners of all shapes and sizes train with professional coaches as part of a strict program, while also fundraising for early career cancer researchers. Can Too has raised over $200 million.

The  charity’s founder, Annie Crawford, said that her father’s untimely death at 51 from bowel cancer inspired her to combine her love of fitness and fundraising. “I’d done a marathon in a similar program in America and I thought  – you know what, I can do this in Australia,’ she said, ‘I never imagined it would reach $200million.”
