MUDMOISELLE is back!

Get ready for a day of mud, sweat and cheers. This Mudmoiselle obstacle course is a 5 km stretch of Canada’s muckiest, filthiest, slimiest mud through the Beaver Valley. It’s where your inner child runs free while testing your endurance, strength and ability to keep a straight face.

This women’s only event is open to all fitness levels. Whether you’re used to running 10k or just running after your toddler, you can take on this challenge.

Saturday, September 10th, 2016 @ Talisman Mountain Springs Inn.  REGISTER or LEARN more here!  
Or contact Jen at jwright@ontario.cancer.ca or Carly at cfurniss@ontario.cancer.ca or (519) 376-6011

Volunteer opportunities

Volunteering with the Society is a great opportunity for you to make a positive impact in your community, be part of a team, share your experience, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships. Volunteers are critical to our accomplishments and we wouldn’t be able to support, inform and empower those touched by cancer without you.


When you join our nationwide team, you have the combined strength of volunteers from across the country standing behind you to help you make a difference in someone’s life.

DRIVERS - Wheels Of Hope Program

The road to recovery needs more drivers …with the kindness and support of volunteer drivers, cancer patients only need to worry about getting better and beating cancer for good.

As a volunteer driver, you’ll pick patients up from their home and take them to their attending hospital or regional cancer centre. You’ll be there to offer friendly support and kindness at a time when they need it the most. And when their treatment is done, you’ll make sure they get home. You can drive as suits your schedule, from Monday to Friday.

Please call the Bluewater Unit office: (519) 376-6011 or e-mail for more information: bluewater@ontario.cancer.ca
