    Pigs of Hope

    Adopt a pig for the holidays and help raise funds for our Wheels of Hope program which provides people in our community with transportation to cancer-related appointments. This is a simple and fun campaign. You simply take a piggy bank home, give him/her a name and feed your new pet well. Pigs love to attend holiday parties, and your friends will love to feed them! Commit to raise at least $50 which is the average cost to drive one person to treatment.

    Daffodil Month

    Daffodil Month, held every April, is a national fundraising campaign of the Canadian Cancer Society with volunteers involved in numerous activities to raise money for the fight against cancer. Money raised during Daffodil Month helps cancer patients and their families in your community. Donations fund life-saving cancer research, support services and other important work that means fewer Canadians will be affected by the disease, and can enhance the lives of people living with cancer.

    Volunteers needed! Booking for 2019 now!

    -Be a captain at daffodil location for a weekend

    -Help raise funds in your own neighborhood by going door-to-door

    -Volunteer for a 2 hour shift selling daffodils pins at a location near you

    If you are interested in helping out, please email theresa.blondin@ontario.cancer.ca

    Give a little time. Make a big difference!

    The overall cancer survival rate has increased from 25% in the 1940s to 60% today. Together, we are making an impact!

    Relay For Life

    At Relay For Life, no one faces cancer alone. This event brings together teams of family, friends and colleagues to celebrate cancer survivors, remember those we’ve lost and commit to raising funds to fight all types of cancer. Relay For Life is a community of people fighting back against cancer.

    Relay For Life is a festival-like fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track. Our event is 12 hours in length, but you are welcome to pack up after luminaries if you like (6 hours). Each team taking part is asked to have at least one member on the track at all times to symbolize the ongoing fight against cancer. On and off track, there is always something to do at Relay For Life. Those taking a break from walking can check out the entertainment and many activities, or relax at their team’s campsite.

    It is truly an event like no other! Registration for 2019 will open soon!

    We are booked for June 7, 2019 at Colasantis
