    Mudmoiselle

    A Mudmoiselle faces every day with fierce optimism. She’s not afraid to get her hands dirty (scratch that, she’s not afraid to get anything dirty). And she believes that obstacles only make her stronger.

    But most importantly, a Mudmoiselle wants to drag cancer through the mud.

    If that sounds like you, then swap your heels for runners, change your push-up bra for a sports bra, and chuck your pantyhose out the window. Whether you’re a survivor or want to support a fighter, it’s time to join your fellow Mudmoiselles in raising funds for Canada's most promising cancer research and vital cancer support services. Because when life gets messy, we stick together.

    The 5K MUD RUN

    Get ready for a day of mud, sweat and cheers. The Mudmoiselle obstacle course is a 5K stretch of the muckiest, filthiest, slimiest mud. It’s where your inner child runs free while testing your endurance, strength and determination.

    This women’s-only event is open to all fitness levels. Whether you’re used to running marathons, running around the office or running after your kids.

    Reach out for more info and let's get down and dirty!

    If you would like to participate in Mudmoiselle please click HERE or contact Emily at 519.376.6011 or emily.bisson@ontario.cancer.ca.

  • 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
