Shoot for the Cure is the U SPORTS Women’s Basketball breast cancer fundraising initiative to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) and other related local and provincial charities.

The campaign has proven an overwhelming success since it was launched in the fall of 2007, with over $1.59 million in donations to date by all 48 U SPORTS women’s basketball programs.

U SPORTS schools raise money through regular season games in Canada West, the OUA, RSEQ and AUS, as well as other special events.

Why participate?

Shoot for the Cure 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 can change the future of cancer.
