The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. We fund the most promising cancer research, cancer prevention initiatives and support services for those facing this terrible disease. From helping increase health warning labels to 75% on cigarette packs, to sending 10,000 children and families to attend Camp Goodtimes since 1986, the Canadian Cancer Society is having more impact, against more cancers, than any other cancer charity in Canada.
For the past 5 years, the Canadian Cancer Society has been a charity of choice for the BMO Vancouver Marathon's Run4Hope Program. Our runners have successfully raised $113,500 through this program!! That's enough to fund one year of an Innovation Grant, enabling the Society to investigate unconventional concepts in cancer research.
Thank you to all who donate and fundraise through your run. Together we can create a world where no Canadian fears cancer!
