The Give’r Project is about having fun, challenging ourselves and staying healthy while supporting people facing cancer and their families.

We are cyclists, runners, swimmers, dancers, walkers…Canadians of all kinds just giv’n’er toward our vision of a world free from cancer. Some of us are committing to athletic challenges like riding, running, swimming, or walking until we reach that bold vision. Get Creative! Commit to learning a new language …or commit to your donors to lose that pesky 15 lbs and begin eating healthier. Whatever you choose, only the money that we raise for those facing cancer matters.
Launched during the pandemic when countless fundraising events have been cancelled, Give’r Project is a platform for Canadians to challenge themselves while supporting cancer research and the life-changing work that goes on at their local cancer centre. When you register you can direct your funds raised to any of Alberta’s regional cancer centres…from the large primary care centres at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton and the Tom Baker Cancer Centre to our 15 other regional cancer centres in Red Deer, Fort McMurray, Hinton, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge and more.
Similar to other Peer2Peer fundraising events you are familiar with, we’re all agreeing to challenge ourselves in a new way. Starting April 12th, 2020, the 40th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope, Team Give’r began our commitment to cover 8,000 kms cycling, running, swimming and walking…either together or on our own. This was the planned distance of Terry’s cross-Canada odyssey beginning in 1980…cut short by lung cancer. If you want to join us just register with STRAVA, join the club Team Give’r, and start moving!
Get creative and personalise your Give’r Project. It’s meant to be inclusive of everyone…young and old and athletes and non-athletes alike. Whatever you choose, let your donors know you are committing to a challenge to honour their support for this cause that affects us all at a time when the funding is needed more than ever.
What’s your Give’r Project?
Anyone and everyone is invited to Register, Share, Donate and support our health care workers across the world who are going to war each day. ITS FREE TO REGISTER!
Keep your distance out on your next run and encourage someone to donate to our cause. Run inside your home, in your backyard, on your condo balcony…whatever it takes and whatever it means for you to be safe.
Are you a seasoned, veteran runner with little fundraising experience? Are you a new runner or jogger who believes you can train and run for an hour straight without stopping? Maybe you want to run every day for a month without a day off, and accumulate a certain amount of total miles or kilometres?
Right now there is no finish line in sight in our collective battle against the COVID-19. But every small thing you do will go a long way towards helping our cause.
Desired Image Boutique is hosting a fundraiser for the month of October. They are encouraging clients to donate through selective products, with a portion of sales from those products to be donated to Breast Cancer through the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
October is Breast Cancer awareness month, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to come together and create the first annual YEG Industry Breast Cancer Fundraiser. Those who wish to participate are welcome to do so by choosing one shift in October to donate their tips or a portion of their tips to the Alberta Cancer Foundation. Please note donations are greatly appreciated from far and wide! Including non industry participants.
Additionally, I am taking on the challenge of completing a 10 km run on October 31st 2020, and I am collecting pledges as well, in honour of my beloved Grandmother, Sandra MacKay who was first diagnosed with cancer in 2012.
Help make a difference by donating today. Let’s reach or exceed our goal of $500 this year!
Thank you for your support.

We will be selling Mystery bags for $25 and $50, where 100% of proceeds will come back to the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s Patient Financial Assistance Program.
Cancer can be a huge strain on the finances. People are often forced to cash in their retirement funds and use up their savings to make ends meet during treatment. The costs can be so overwhelming that some patients will decide against having life-saving therapy and instead choose a lesser treatment as they simply cannot afford the out-of-pocket expenses for items such as medications, medical supplies, transportation, accommodations and child care. Thanks to individuals like you, patients and families are able to receive financial support during their treatment so they can focus on what matters most – healing.
Last year, the Patient Financial Assistance Program was accessed more than 4,933 times by over 926 families across Alberta.
The 2021 Boobs, Balls, & Beer Calendar’s mission is to aim awareness and share resources for mental health, men’s health, breast cancer and cancer support awareness. 50% of the proceeds raised will benefit the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

In memory of the late Sid Braaksma, niece Korinda Kostiw and relative Ton Van Orizande, we ask that you donate to the Cross Cancer Institute.
