ERC Gayle Shaw Memorial Fun Day – 2021
Oct 25 all-day

Gayle Shaw was a great supporter of Ringette. She saw the joy & fun that Ringette brings to so many of us, and worked tirelessly to ensure her daughter, teammates, and future generations of Elite athletes had opportunities to develop their skills and experience, and create amazing memories at the same time.  At the Gayle Shaw Memorial Fun Day, the ERC celebrates her legacy and we invite all Edmonton area Ringette athletes to come out and have some fun! Gayle was taken from us fighting cancer, so we find it only fitting that we raise funds for cancer research – and to show our support for victims of cancer while playing the game that Gayle loved so much.  There is no cost for athletes to register for the Fun Day.

Jun 17 all-day

Bellerose Composite High School is partnering with the Alberta Cancer Foundation to host their 18th Annual Bike-a-Thon fundraiser on June 17, 2021. All funds raised will make a difference in the lives of Albertans facing cancer, bringing earlier detection, improved treatments, enhanced quality of life and prevention strategies to patients.

Thanks to the support of generous Albertans like you, the Cross Cancer Institute has not only been able to deliver specialized care to those facing cancer, but continually pushes the pace of discovery with cutting-edge technologies and research that delivers results to Alberta’s cancer patients faster. For many patients and their families, the Cross Cancer Institute will forever hold a special place in their hearts for the compassionate care they received during their cancer journey.

For the past 17 years, Bellerose students and staff, families, friends, and community members have come together to support the Albertans who will hear the words “you have cancer” every day. With your help, they’ve raised over $2.93 million since 2004.

This year, the students and staff hope to continue creating more moments for Albertans facing cancer. Please consider making a donation. Your support brings the best in prevention, screening, research and care to Alberta’s cancer patients. Together, we are making a difference.

We Are Hair for You
Elaine’s Hair Donation and Head Shave Fundraiser

Although I’ve dealt with several health issues in my life, I’ve been lucky to not have experienced cancer. Many of my family, friends and colleagues can’t say the same. I have marvelled at their strength and resilience as they battled the disease themselves or supported loved ones through diagnosis and treatment. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s a battle that can’t be won.

Over the past several months, as the world watched scientists develop, test and deploy a COVID-19 vaccine in record time, I was struck by what’s possible when resources are directed to tackling a health crisis. While I can’t raise the same money that helped create a COVID-19 vaccine, I can do my part to help fund the fight against cancer.

I have been growing my hair since the start of the pandemic, at first because of public health restrictions, but later just to see how long it would get. It got really, really long and now I’m ready to shed it all for a good cause.

On June 30, I will be donating my hair to Alfred’s Hair Transitions to help with making hair pieces for children battling cancer and shaving my head to raise funds to support cancer research. I will be live streaming the event through Zoom and will send all donors a link so they can watch the shearing.

I hope you’ll support my fundraising event. I believe it’s up to all of us to underwrite the research needed to save lives and bring us closer to a cure.
