We are always stronger when we unite in the face of adversity! This is why we have made it our mission to challenge Canada’s business community to get involved in the fight against cancer by donating and raising funds for scientific research. Together with our beneficiaries, we hope to create the real possibility of a cancer-free future for our children and grandchildren!

How has education shaped your life?

Where would
you like to give back?

Passionate, talented trainees (graduate students and post-doctoral fellows) are the driving force behind the work at the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute (GCI). Access to funds in the form of stipends is critical to the success of these projects—one of the many ways to support their dedication.

Several initiatives are in place to promote the exchange of ideas and report scientific findings within the Institute. These are crucial for creating a sense of excitement and cohesion. Additionally, the GCI has created its signature, Public Forum lecture series. These educational gatherings inform the public on developments in basic biomedical research, keeping you up-to-date on how your donations are helping.
