Can Too Foundation

Bondi Blue Water Challenge is thrilled that the Can Too Foundation is our 2019 health and wellbeing partner. While the Bondi Blue Water Challenge event raises money for Bondi Bathers Surf Club, we also want to support those who battle the waves not just for their own health and wellbeing but to help others’ by raising money for cancer research and prevention.
