About the BC Cancer Foundation – The Tour de Cure | BC Cancer Foundation

ABOUT US

 

The Tour de Cure, presented by Wheaton Precious Metals is BC’s biggest cycling fundraiser, now with a new name. Supporting the BC Cancer Foundation, the Tour de Cure is powering life-saving cancer research that saves lives. You can form a team, start collecting donations and hit the road in your community.

The BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising partner of BC Cancer. Every dollar we raise supports BC Cancer to advance research and innovations to care.

At the BC Cancer Foundation we believe that with your help BC CAN make a difference in the lives of all British Columbians. We know that one in two people in our province will face cancer in their lifetime and we’re igniting progress to break down cancer, piece by piece, in the labs and clinics. By working with people like you and powering cancer research, we are confident that BC CAN change the outcome for each person facing this disease.

The progress is real.
