Pierre Radisson Collegiate Reunion



I invite you to help me make a difference in the lives of thousands of Manitobans touched by cancer.  I have been involved with CancerCare Manitoba Foundation for many years bringing Motor Coach Industries into the famous Manitoba Dragon Boat Festival, a well known generous contributor to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the Children's Hospital.

I have just registered the Pierre Radisson Collegiate Reunion, raising funds for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and specifically for Multiple Myeloma, because recently our High School very good friend, David Penner, was surprised with a diagnosis in January 2022.  

Multiple myeloma is the most common type of plasma cell cancer. It is estimated that in 2021, 3800 Canadians will be diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

David is not able to join us on Saturday May 7th, at the Tavern United for our Class Reunion, as he is required to keep his distance from the public, as a healthy precaution for his compromised immune system. So we are going to show our support to our class mate by a drive by parade around noon, past his home and wave to him on Speers Rd., as Brent and I have previously explained to all on our PRC alumni list.

Please support me in my goal of raising $1,000.00 PLUS, for this important cause, in the living tribute to David Penner, his twin brother Dale Penner, and David's whole loving family.

Making a donation online is quick and easy. You can make your donation here by clicking the donate now button.  Donations of $15 or more will automatically receive a tax receipt.

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. 

Every dollar is so important in helping to create more tomorrows for Manitobans and their families living with cancer.

I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress!
