Over fourteen years ago, a group of individuals made a decision to change the way cancer has touched their lives. To channel the negative energy into something positive and to ultimately make a difference. The ‘Drive for the Cure’ was born.
Since its inception, the Drive for the Cure Committee, with generous support of local BC businesses and individuals, has raised over $1 million to provide funds for cancer care and treatment in British Columbia. At our 13th annual tournament, we raised $175,433 and this year we would like to better that mark.
The objective for the Drive for the Cure continues to be fundraising through a number of events: most notably, the Drive for the Cure Golf Tournament. Proceeds from these events are used to enhance the health, well-being and quality of life for those struggling with this deadly disease. Projects undertaken by the Drive for the Cure include: the purchase of special diagnostic and treatment equipment; provision of funds for a Children’s Program to assist young children coping with this devastating illness in the family or the death of a parent or grandparent; and the purchase of visual aids to provide patients undergoing unpleasant treatments, a much needed moment of hope.
This year 50% of the funds will continue to be distributed for cancer care and treatment and 50% will be placed in an Endowment Fund. As always, zero percent of the funds raised are directed to administration. All of our events and fundraising programs are designed and run by volunteers.
With our 14th Annual Golf Tournament scheduled for Tuesday July 10th 2012, we would like to invite you and your organization to join us for a day of fun on and off the links while helping us to assist those in need against cancer.
We look forward in joining you to Help Make a Difference...........
