Kids can participate in this new program designed just for them. As a summer activity, we have put together a five day summer camp that they can participate in virtually.

The Albertans Helping Albertans Virtual 5K is a virtual, province-wide fundraiser that raises funds for the 17 Alberta Health Services cancer centres. Every donation made will help drive the individual needs and vital services of the chosen centre, where world-class equipment, technology and personnel can help change the lives of patients as well as their families.

You can participate by joining a team or as an individual and committing to run or walk a minimum of 5K! You will also choose which cancer centre you would like raise funds for- from Fort McMurray, to Red Deer to Lethbridge.

Signature Event: Alberta Cancer Foundation Golf Classic - South

Postponed until 2021

In 2016, the longstanding Don LaBerge Memorial Golf Classic joined forces with the Golf for the Cure in memory of Janice E. Crist. The tournament was a huge success and raised $50,000 for the Patient Financial Assistance Program to make life better for Albertans facing cancer.

Together these tournaments joined forces with the Alberta Cancer Foundation to kick off the 1st Annual Alberta Cancer Foundation Golf Classic in 2017. With the help of our supporters and generous donors, over $830,000 net has been raised for patients facing cancer across the province.

From north to south, east to west, Albertans have one thing in common – a love for their province, their people and their communities. Known for our friendliness, resilience, generosity and good citizenship, Albertans have a lot to be proud of.

The Alberta Cancer Foundation is thrilled to announce the Big Blue Sky Gala – an event that celebrates all things Albertan, while providing support to our friends, family and neighbors facing cancer in our province.


The Big Blue Sky Gala supports one of the Foundation’s signature programs – the Patient Financial Assistance Program (PFAP).

A cancer diagnosis not only brings physical and emotional challenges, but can also be a huge financial burden to patients and their families. Our Patient Financial Assistance Program means Albertan families can focus on what matters most – healing.

If you have any questions about how you can get involved, please contact Michelle Body at michelle.body@albertacancer.ca or at 403.476.2421.
