$133276 Raised


The great people at the 2021 Tour de Cure have managed to secure $5,000.00 in donations from Astra Zeneca and Merck. This money will go to the team that raises the most money between now and the 21st of July.

Eleven years ago, our team was started by two oral medicine and oral pathology specialists at the British Columbia Cancer Agency. They wanted to raise funds for cancer research and also elevate the awareness of oral cancer. We raise money, in memory of one of those two remarkable women, Dr. Michele Williams. The Dr. Michele Williams Oral Cancer Research and Education Fund is helping to ensure those that face any type of cancer will benefit from Better Outcomes sooner rather than later.

Please help us grow the Dr. Michele Williams Oral Cancer Research and Education Fund further so that real progress can be made in the fight against cancer. There is no vaccine for cancer but with your help, there will be a cure! Please donate, every buck will help us get closer to a cure:.
