Our impact
Ride for Cancer
Over $4 million net raised to transform cancer care, here at home.

Our Ride community rose to an epic challenge in 2020 with a goal to raise $1-million net. Funds raised will transform cancer care for Atlantic Canadians and help ensure our cancer centre has the best treatment options available, here at home.

A word from Alyson Currie

The truth is that sometimes patients are more concerned about the financial burden of being sick than they are about their illness. Our community has the power to help these individuals focus on what matters most: their health. Generosity from the community will enable the immediate purchase of gift cards for fuel, groceries and personal care for patients."

Health care is changing
