Hi, I am participating in my third Relay For Life event on Friday March 22. I would like to organize a fundraiser before the event to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. I was thinking of organizing a bowling event. I first attended a Relay For Life event at my high school in 2012. Since then I have been wanting to participate every year after but unfortunately was too late in signing up and thought I had to form a team of 10 people before signing up. Luckily I found out I could join on my own and I don’t need to have a team. I believe that the Canadian Cancer Society is a great organization to donate to because cancer is the known cause of many deaths and anyone can get it no matter how you live your life. Luckily for the Canadian Cancer Society it is possible to help people who suffer from cancer.
Every dollar counts in our efforts to reduce the burden of cancer on Canadians. Thanks to your donations, we’re able to continue funding the most promising cancer research, advocate for health-protecting policies and provide trusted information, resources and support for every Canadian affected by cancer. Thank you! You fund Canada’s best cancer research Thanks to Canadians like you, CCS has channeled over $1.4 billion to cancer research since the 1940s. In that time, only about 25% of Canadians with cancer would survive at least 5 years after their diagnosis. Today, survival is about 60%.
Cancer is now the leading killer in Canada. StatsCan just announced the results of a 2008 study, which shows cancer accounting for 30 percent of all deaths. https://www.besthealthmag.ca/best-you/prevention/news-whats-the-no-1-killer-in-canada/
This is why I want to help fundraise donations for the Canadian Cancer Society. If you could please help me out by donating any amount, I am sure that it would help change lives. If you are in Ottawa and can come to the bowling fundraiser I am organizing, it would be great to see you.
