Workout to Conquer Cancer - 2018

The Department of Pediatrics, UBC & BC Children's

We are working out  to honor the long service of Wendy Cannon to the Department of Pediatrics.

This May we’ll be participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer presented by RYU Apparel, 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.

The cost to join is free! The participation fee of $31 to join the Workout to Conquer Cancer initiative has been waived for team members of the Department of Pediatrics.

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

Tax receipts will be issued for donations as small as $10. Help us reach our goal of $1000 to honor our dear colleague.

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

To foster a little friendly competition in the department, we have amazing participation prizes from our community sponsors that we will give out to the individuals that log the most workouts in the month of May.

Complete as many workouts as you can and you will be eligible to win one of our draw prizes!
