Trailblazer For Cancer

Saturday Jun 22, 2024
10 - 14:00

On Saturday, June 22, 2024, walkers, runners and cyclists of all ages will come together on the St. Margaret's Bay "Rails to Trails" to raise funds and awareness for cancer research and to show support for individuals and families affected by cancer.

Register now for Trailblazer For Cancer.

All funds raised from Trailblazer for Cancer will support the Atlantic Division of the national Terry Fox PROFYLE project (short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE) through the IWK Foundation. 80 per cent of children diagnosed with cancer will survive but outcomes are poor for the 20 per cent whose cancers have spread, returned or are resistant to treatment. This project—for the first time in Canadian history—will bring together more than 30 pediatric cancer research and funding organizations to give children, adolescents and young adults who do not have conventional treatment options left another chance to overcome their cancer.
