From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! You’re making a difference for people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer
Thank you to everyone that participated in the 2016 Cypress Challenge benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation. With your help we hosted a record 750 riders and raised an amazing $400,000 to advance pancreatic cancer research! Over nine years, our total donations raised have surpassed $2 million!
This year’s event will help Dr. Daniel Renouf and his colleagues at Pancreas Centre BC fully understand how pancreatic cancer develops and progresses. One of the key areas of research going forward will be potential screening methods to help catch the disease earlier. The team is also working to develop innovative new therapies to improve the length and quality of patient lives. Your efforts mean hope for patients in the clinic tomorrow.
So again (and we cannot say it enough), from all of us. Thank you, and we hope you can join us again for our 10th year anniversary in 2017.
