With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, we all know someone whose life has been changed by this disease. But each day, our friends, family, neighbours, and colleagues prove to us that while cancer can change everything, it doesn’t have to define who you are.
At the Canadian Cancer Society, we show the people we love that life is bigger than your diagnosis – and that no matter where you live, you don’t have to face cancer alone.
Climb for Cancer is more than a fundraiser. It unites a collective of Canadians who are a force-for-life in the face of cancer. It’s a chance for participants to come together and celebrate the survivors in our communities, who send a powerful message of hope for those living with the disease. It’s a place to honour and remember those we’ve lost to cancer.
With your help, we can prove that together, we are bigger than cancer
The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is the only national charity that supports Canadians with all cancers in communities across the country. No other organization does what we do; we are the voice for Canadians who care about cancer. We fund groundbreaking research, provide a support system for all those affected by cancer and shape health policies to prevent cancer and support those living with the disease.
