Learn to swim with Can Too
Can Too Foundation has safely taught over 5000 people to ocean swim in structured training programs with professional coaching. These people have raised funds for cancer research and prevention in return. Since 2009 Can Too have been training people in a supportive environment to complete the Balmoral Swim for Cancer events. Find out more and register your interest to train for the 2023 5km Balmoral Swim for Cancer.
Learning to ocean swim with Can Too is life changing. I missed the ocean living overseas. Since arriving home I'd seen people ocean swimming, but I didn't know how to, and felt unprepared to join in. From the very start of the Can Too program I felt like that this is part of me and these are my people. I was humbled and in awe of everyone's ability to progress with the things they teach you. Over time you put it all together and then next thing you know you're an ocean swimmer!
