Pinecrest Golf Club – Golfers Fundraiser
As our third-party fund raisers are starting to figure out how to fundraise on-line in the meantime a group of golfers at the Pinecrest Golf Club held an impromptu fundraiser for us, and raised $650. They have committed to supporting us next year with a bigger and better golf tournament.
The Royal Bank located in Iroquois
The Royal Bank located in Iroquois also held a car rally and was able to raise $2200 for Breast Cancer Action.
Courage Against Cancer
Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, with nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to experience cancer in their lifetime. As four high school students, we realized that there was a lack of cancer awareness initiatives that also provided youth with opportunities to make a change in their own community, so we founded Courage Against Cancer to fill that gap. Courage Against Cancer is a youth-led platform that aims to provide students with the scope to learn about the disease, network with youth passionate about cancer awareness, and explore opportunities to help cancer patients and survivors in their own communities. Through interactive events like webinars, fundraisers for charities, trivias, and scientific updates, we hope to connect students to convenient resources to broaden their horizons in the world of cancer and oncology.What inspired us to fundraise for Breast Cancer Ottawa: We realized that the COVID-19 pandemic has largely restricted treatment options for those with chronic illnesses. With hospitals overflowing and many fundraising events being cancelled, we wished to use our platform to support whoever we could. In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we partnered with Breast Cancer Action Ottawa and the Kelly’s Boutique’s “Kelly Project”. Through this initiative, we believe that we can create a wonderful opportunity for our members to take initiative in making a change within their community while gaining valuable learning and leadership experience.
