Our Signature Events

Albertans Helping Albertans Virtual 5K

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.

If you have any questions about how you can get involved, please contact Michelle Pitt at or at 403.828.7044.

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 $1M net has been raised for patients facing cancer across the province.

We look forward to seeing everyone on the course on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 for our signature summer golf tournament at Country Hills Golf Club in Calgary, AB.

If you have any questions about how you or your golf course can get involved, please contact Michelle Pitt at or at 403.828.7044.

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.
