PCN needs you!

Fun and Fundrai$ing for Prevent Cancer Now!

We’ve set our sights high, and now all we need is YOU to help Prevent Cancer Now raise at least $60,000 in the
2009 Cancer Prevention Challenge [1].

we-need-you

We have some serious work to do on the cancer prevention front over the coming months and years, but we promise you some serious fun raising $$$ to help us do it. Read all about it here [2]!

Our PCN Red Mountain Team got us off to a great start on the ski slopes of the BC interior with a March 21st event that raised nearly $5,000. And Prevent Cancer Now already has five more Teams participating in The 2009 Challenge this Spring – two in Ottawa, and one each in Montreal, Toronto and Halifax. From gourmet cupcakes to run-walk events, to ‘taking your clothes off for cancer prevention’, there’s only one limit to raising funds in this event – your imagination!

The Cancer Prevention Challenge is the only fundraiser in Canada devoted exclusively to raising funds for primary prevention of cancer – stopping cancer before it starts. Contact Frances Rubio, PCN’s Youth Coordinator, for all the inspiration you will ever need to get on board! (Fran’s email is: frances.rubio@gmail.com [3]).

All contributions of $20 or more receive a charitable receipt from the official sponsor of The 2009 Cancer Prevention Challenge, the Women’s Healthy Environments Network [4].
