2020 Kayaking for Cancer
This year, due to the situation surrounding COVID-19, Kayaking for Cancer has gone virtual.
This novel virus has affected everyone in some way or another, but we must not forget that cancer is still here - also affecting everyone in some way or another.
To date, Canada has seen 110,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with nearly 9,000 deaths.
In 2019 alone, over 220,000 Canadians were diagnosed with cancer and over 82,000 succumbed to the disease.
We are not understating COVID-19, but rather reiterating that cancer did not pause because of the pandemic. Cancer patients still require treatment and are more susceptible to other infections and viruses. Reasearch must still go on. The fight must continue.
Cancer hasn't stopped and neither will we.
Please follow our virtual journey between August 8-15,2020, and donate online to help us, Kayaking for Cancer continue to do our part and reach our goal.
Proceeds from our fundraiser will support the fight against cancer
