2018 Community Event - Pediatric Cancer

Backcountry's Kicking Cancer Run

I am committed to making a difference. I am proud to be fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and am asking for your support in helping me reach my goal.

CancerCare Manitoba Foundation is the only organization exclusively fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba. While CancerCare Manitoba works in partnership with Manitoba Health, some programs and services may not be eligible for government funding. CancerCare Manitoba Foundation raises funds to bridge this gap and help deliver the best research, patient care, treatment and support for all Manitobans and their families living with cancer. 

Each year more than 6,000 Manitobans receive a cancer diagnosis.  Your continued support helps CancerCare Manitoba and its partners prepare for an estimated 50% increase in the number of people diagnosed and living with cancer over the next decade. 

By supporting me with a donation, you are helping to support CancerCare Manitoba in its work to change lives and change the course of cancer in our province.  

Since we started our very first Kicking Cancer fundraiser, I have lost 3 grandparents to cancer. This event is so dear to me, but I realize that so many people are affected by this aweful disease.

This year’s 2018 Backcountry Kicking Cancer RUN race is dedicated to her long battle with Cancer and how she inspired so many around her ‍

Because of her love and dedication to her grandchildren and great grandchildren, we will continue to honour her and reach our goal.

Our goal is to raise $7500.00 for Pediatrics CancerCare foundation, and collect items for our Oma’s totes of love to be gifted to children going through CancerCare treatment.

In addition to meeting our fundraiser goal, we will also be collecting items to fill our Oma’s totes of love.

Totes will go directly to a child that is in CH5, and children that are traveling day in and day out to CancerCare treatments right here in Winnipeg.

Every donation -no matter how big or small- is critical as we work together to stay ahead of this disease.

Thank you for your consideration.
