Event has brought in $90,000 in three years

Updated: June 12

The Northern Cancer Foundation has announced that nearly 300 participants registered and took part in the Cancer Centre Walk/Run/Bike for Hope on June 11 and raised $35,000 for local cancer care, research and equipment at the Northeast Cancer Centre.

The walkers, runners and bikers were blessed with sunshine and smiles at the third annual Cancer Centre Walk/Run/Bike for Hope at Kivi Park.

There was increased excitement around this year’s event with the change of venue and the addition of a biking portion.

“It was clear to us when we woke up to sunshine this morning that it was going to be a special day and we weren't disappointed,” said Tannys Laughren, Executive Director of the Northern Cancer Foundation.

“This event couldn't have happened without our participants, donors, sponsors, volunteers and the incredible staff at Kivi Park. We’re so, so thankful for all of the support.”

In three years, the Cancer Centre Walk/Run/Bike for Hope has raised $90,000.
