ABOUT THE CAUSE
The BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising partner of BC Cancer and the largest charitable funder of cancer research in BC. Every dollar we raise stays right here at BC Cancer to advance research and enhance care for the people of B.C.
More than 27,000 British Columbians will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Our donors contribute to breakthrough research that is directly improving care for cancer patients in British Columbia.
There is now compelling evidence proving that exercise improves cancer treatment side effects and reduces risk of dying from other conditions. In 20I3, BC Cancer researchers commenced a three-year Phase I study, Nutrition and Exercise during Treatment (NExT), which proved that physical activity has positive benefits for women diagnosed with breast cancer.
Proceeds from the NeXT Up Spin-a-thon, supporting the BC Cancer Foundation will allow the NeXT team to launch Phase II of this study to enhance nutrition and exercise program for patients at BC Cancer. You can learn more about the NeXT program by visiting www.nextprogram.ca
