Meet our new team member - Robin Nicholls
Position: Community Engagement Specialist
I CAN TOO BECAUSE:
I love the accountability of a supportive training group, I am better for it and I am over seeing cancer do bad things to good people.
MY CHALLENGE THIS YEAR WAS:
I always give myself a challenge each year, it might be a marathon or an Ironman 70.3, something that really pushes the limits of my comfort zone. This year I took on the South Head Roughwater Swim from Bondi to Watson’s Bay - an 11.5km swim which passes through the heads of Sydney Harbour. I’ve wanted to take part in this event for a few years and committed to giving it a go when my friend and Can Too legend, Mark Ellis, passed away. Mark overcame some huge obstacles to complete the swim last year, and I wanted to take it on as a mark of respect to a great man.Yes, I got it done. It was a great day and got me thinking about what next year’s challenge will be.
MY GOALS FOR MY NEW ROLE:
One of the best things about Can Too is the community. There is something about people who are physically active and want to help others, they’re just good people, which the Can Too community is full of. I want to see our community expand while retaining the supportive and encouraging culture that permeates through it. If I can manage to do that I’ll sleep well at night.
