The 2019 Trailblazer for Cancer was a great success!
Thank you to everyone who supported this year's Trailblazer for Cancer! Whether you signed up, donated, or volunteered, you are the reason this event continues to be a great success year after year!
Together, we raised over $130,000 for the IWK Foundation!
All funds raised from Trailblazer for Cancer will support the Atlantic Division of the national Terry Fox PROFYLE project (short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE) through the IWK Foundation. 80 per cent of children diagnosed with cancer will survive but outcomes are poor for the 20 per cent whose cancers have spread, returned or are resistant to treatment. This project—for the first time in Canadian history—will bring together more than 30 pediatric cancer research and funding organizations to give children, adolescents and young adults who do not have conventional treatment options left another chance to overcome their cancer.
Although the event may be over for this year, you can still donate online! To donate to a participant or team, click here. To make a general donation to the event, click here.
