Workout to Conquer Cancer - 2020

Miguel Gavar

Welcome to our team page!

In December 2018, I was diagnosed with early stage esophageal cancer. With faith, prayers and support from my wife, family and friends, and the amazing care I received from the teams at BC Cancer Agency and the Royal Jubilee Hospital, I defeated and survived cancer. I am beyond happy to be celebrating my first year of being cancer-free and I am thankful to BC Cancer Agency and the BC Cancer foundation. I want to give back and support BC Cancer, cancer patients, fellow survivors and their families and friends. Thank you for joining me on this personal goal of helping, supporting and making a difference on cancer patients lives and their families. This May, we’ll be participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer, where we’ll be challenging ourselves to get moving every day of the month while fundraising in support of critical cancer research and enhancements to care at BC Cancer. Whether we run, walk, bike or dance, every sweat we break and dollar we raise will be in support of the 77,000 people facing cancer across British Columbia.

Research is the foundation of advancements in cancer prevention, early detection and improved treatment options. B.C. is home to a world-class cancer research and care organization and with our efforts, Workout will enable major discoveries that will help revolutionize the way cancer is diagnosed and treated in the coming years. 

Please consider making a donation to our team and help improve outcomes for the one in two British Columbians who will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. 

Interested in taking on the challenge? Join our team! We can Workout and fundraise together for this very important cause.

Thank you!
