On Saturday, June 22, 2019, walkers, runners and cyclists will come together on the St. Margaret’s Bay "Rails to Trails" to raise funds and awareness for cancer and to show their support for individuals and families affected by cancer.
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.
All ages and participant levels are welcome and everyone is encouraged to set an individual fundraising goal and collect donations for the IWK!
Please note: Participants under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants ages 14 to 16 must have parental consent. Join a team or participate as an individual!
