Forest Hill Grade 9 Girls
Welcome to the team. Team members will participate in Compete for the Cure™ (CFTC), a dodgeball and basketball tournament in support of Pancreatic Cancer Canada. It will include participants representing close to 20 different schools from across Toronto and will take place on Sunday, May 5th, 2019 at HoopDome.
This year, an estimated 5,500 Canadians will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Most of these patients will be given less than a year to fight, to live their lives, and make memories with their families. We are still trying to understand the causes of this disease, discover ways to detect it earlier, and ultimately find a cure. Pancreatic cancer is on track to become the second deadliest cancer in North America as early as 2020, making the need for critic research investments from personal and corporate donors more important and impactful than the event.
Thank you in advance for your support of my fundraising efforts!
