7 Days is a cycling event and fundraiser that was founded in 2012 to increase awareness about pancreatic cancer and to raise funds to help find a cure for this deadly affliction. The statistics are staggering: 90% of those diagnosed will die within 5 years. 75% of patients will die within the first year following diagnosis. Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in Canada. Survival rates have not improved in the last 40 years – it’s time to change those statistics.
7 Days was founded by the Townley family in memory of Lorraine Townley to continue her legacy by raising the awareness and funds necessary to cure pancreatic cancer. All proceeds will be directed towards clinical trials and other direct studies, focused on early detection and a cure as well as providing support and education for those impacted by the disease.
To date, 7 Days has raised over $1.6 million and has reached out to hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to deliver their message of hope and determination to cure pancreatic cancer.
PCC hopes to take this event to a national level and get people active for a full seven days each year, supporting those cycling to improve their own strength and fitness.
