Ready to commit to a new fitness regime but not sure where or how to start? Why not try something a bit different and sign up for NAB RunWest, raise money for cancer and join a group training session with our partners Can Too.
Training sessions for NAB RunWest run by our specialist training partner Can Too have kicked off in several locations in Blacktown, Sydney Motorsport Park, Sydney Olympic Park and Baulkham Hills. However, you can still sign up as there is space in all of the pods. More details on where the sessions are located can be found here.
The beauty of joining a Can Too group to train with is the added motivation of training with like-minded new friends. Specialist coaches provide advice and are always on hand to help you even if you can’t make it to a session.
“Life sometimes gets in the way meaning you miss training sessions and that’s okay. You’ll be given a training plan to help you make up the sessions in your time (if you can) and if you miss one here or there that’s okay, it’s why we build you up slowly over several weeks leading into race day. Can Too is always happy to chat to you over the phone,” said Marty Pinkstone, Marketing & Communications Manager at Can Too Foundation.
In return for providing the professional training sessions Can Too asks that you raise $600 for its Foundation, which has a mission to transform lives through improving health and wellbeing in the community and supporting research, prevention, care and control of cancer.
“You have until 31 days after the event (1 May 2019) to meet your fundraising commitment. We don’t charge credit cards but if you’ve still got a bit to go, we can continue to work with you after the cut-off this date on creative fundraising ideas, to help you reach your goal. We’ve got heaps of fundraising resources and a Team Captain to help, which is how we have helped 15,000 people fundraise for cancer research and prevention since 2005,” said Marty.
Registrations will ‘officially’ close at midday on Tuesday 5th February, however if you would like to join after this cut-off date speak with a coach and you may still be able to sign up depending on your fitness levels.
