  • Curl For Cancer

    Every year, both experienced and novice curlers pick up their brooms to participate in Curl For Cancer events across Nova Scotia. Curl For Cancer is a fun-filled event where teams of 4 hit the ice, have fun and raise pledges in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.

  • Cops For Cancer

    Police officers across the province agree to have their heads shaved – and play a leadership role in the community, fundraise for the Canadian Cancer Society and raise cancer awareness.

  • Hold your own event

    No matter how small or how large, your contribution can make a difference in the fight against cancer. Hosting an event to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society is easy to do!

    You create the event. It can be anything – an aerobics marathon, a stair climb, a bowling or golf tournament – or whatever else you can think of.

    Register your event and become a cancer fighter
