Glotman-Simpson Cypress Challenge

Date

August 3, 2021 - August 9, 2021

Event Information

This year, 800 British Columbians are estimated to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. 75% of these patients won’t survive the first year, and less than 10% will survive five years.

Since 2008, Cypress Challenge has raised an incredible $3.5 million to break down this deadly disease – and it’s thanks to the generosity of community members like you. Together, we can drive innovations in research and enhance care to benefit each person facing this disease.

With your help, BC Cancer can continue their vital work to break down this deadly disease.
