Canadian Cancer Society — Charity Partner

Golf Canada and the Canadian Cancer Society first partnered to engage women in golf while raising funds for the breast cancer cause.

Breast cancer is still the most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among women in Canada. The Canadian Cancer Society is funding more groundbreaking breast cancer research than any other national charity and tremendous progress is being made. Today, the 5-year net survival rate for breast cancer is 87%. Since the late 1980’s, there has been a 44% decrease in the breast cancer death rate thanks to early detection and increased screening rates, combined with better treatment therapies.

With the support of partners like Golf Canada, the Canadian Cancer Society can continue funding high-quality breast cancer research, educating women about early detection, and providing information and support services to those living with breast cancer, ensuring no woman is alone in her journey.
