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.
Sitting at Timmies my head was swirling with the words “Hodgkins Lymphoma stage 4”. My mom had just shared with me that she was diagnosed with this, and would begin chemo soon. Often times when a friend or colleague shares this devastating news, our hearts go out to them…but sometimes we don’t think it will reach us. Unfortunately, though it has become more and more common someone we know in our sphere of influence is touched by cancer. According to the Alberta Cancer Foundation 58 Albertans everyday hear the words “You’ve got cancer.”
As caregivers, family members and friends watch a loved one fight an incredibly tough journey, we feel helpless in not being able to do more to support and help them through this. However, we can be thankful that over time medical research has improved greatly, and we know miracles can happen. It is so great now to know that every year 600 Albertans survive and beat cancer, that they wouldn’t have such great odds had it been 25 years ago.
However, this is largely in part possible because of donors and all of us who make it financially possible to create awareness and research, to not only find cures, but medical breakthroughs.
In honor of my mom, I am shaving my head to raise proceeds so that greater research can be actioned in providing better advanced screening. My belief is if we can have more advanced resources that go towards prevention and protection, we can save more lives. I thank you in advance for joining with me in my cause, and honoring my mom through this difficult journey.

Our event/fundraiser will be a Virtual Yoga Session hosted on Facebook. We were inspired by the idea to do yoga as our fundraiser activity of choice because we want to promote health and wellness as well as cancer awareness to our participants. We feel that Yoga aligns well with the vision that the Alberta Cancer Foundation has and is a fun activity for our participants to be involved with.
Free participant registration. Any donation amount is appreciated.
