Cancer Care Manitoba

2022 Community Event - Pediatric Cancers

Bisons Walk-a-Thon for Childhood Cancer

The Science Students’ Association in collaboration with the University of Manitoba Students’ Union is hosting the Bisons Walk-a-thon for Childhood Cancer on May 28th at the University of Manitoba. All proceeds will go to CancerCare Manitoba for pediatric cancer research. On May 28th we will begin with a walk-a-thon around the U of M campus, followed by a series of activities and food trucks on the quad.

We are happy to have your support whether it be in-person at the event, through online fundraising, or both!

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 the Bisons Walk-a-thon for Childhood Cancer, you are helping to support CancerCare Manitoba in its work to change lives and change the course of cancer in our province.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

The University of Manitoba's Science Students' Association
