Bellerose Composite High School Bike-a-Thon @ Bellerose Composite High School
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.

100 Kata for World Karate Day – for ACF – 2021
Oct 24 all-day
This year, the dojo will again be participating in the 100 Kata for Karate Day Challenge, an annual event since 2014, celebrated on October 25. Again this year, they are using it as an opportunity to raise money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. But this event takes on a very special meaning for them this time.
In January 2021, they lost their dear friend Sarah, a karate mom and wife and a stalwart supporter of the dojo, to cancer. Sarah had been with them since 2008, studying for a time with her family and eventually becoming the dojo’s treasurer. She also joined them on a very memorable training junket to Okinawa, Japan in 2016.
This year, it only seems fitting that they remember and honour Sarah’s dedication and devotion to the dojo by training hard and raising money to support the foundation’s research and its support for Albertans living with cancer.

Julie Rohr

For Julie, a voicemail changed everything.

Stage four cancer.

Sadly, she is not alone. One in two Albertans will hear the words, “you have cancer” in their lifetime and One in four will not survive.

We need to do more. With your help we can.
