PANCREATIC CANCER CHALLENGE 2020 - INSPIRED BY THE MANY FRIENDS AND FAMILY LOST

GOAL: TO IMPROVE PANCREATIC SURGERY OPTIONS AND OUTCOMES AT THE JGH, LED BY DR. TSAFRIR VANOUNOU AND HIS INCREDIBLE TEAM

We are proud to present the Pancreatic Cancer Challenge 2020. With your support we will improve pancreatic surgery options and outcomes at the JGH. Let's work together to support Dr. Tsafrir Vanounou and his incredible team to raise the number of survivors to a level significantly higher than the count of fatalities.

JOIN US FOR THE 2020 STAIR CLIMB CHALLENGE!

Despite the Coronavirus turning our world upside down, Pancreatic Cancer has not taken a break and neither have we!

In fact, raising awareness and fundraising is more critical than ever. Like all major illnesses, pre-screening is being delayed and the backlog of patients awaiting surgery is growing. Research has also been put on hold during the pandemic. Already poor survival rates are likely to get even worse.

Last year we hosted a successful Mother's Day climb on the iconic steps of Mont-Royal, proudly raising a combined total of $120,000. This year we may all have to settle for climbing our own front steps, but our commitment remains the same and we hope yours does too!

Please join us in support of Dr. Vanounou and his dedicated surgical team at the Jewish General Hospital. Create you own personal Stair Climb Challenge page, join a team OR create a new team with family, co-workers and friends.

Set your climbing goals and participate between Aug. 1st and Oct. 31st. 2020. Participants can REGISTER and DONATIONS can be made directly on our website at: www.kickpancreass.com

Simple as that and please share your climbing photos and videos on our @kickpancreass Instagram page!

100% of funds raised will continue to support critical pancreatic research at the JGH and help develop and implement 3D imaging software that may make all the difference during complicated pancreatic surgeries. Tax receipts available upon request.

Thank you all for your tremendous support and remember, stay safe and respect Covid-19 social distancing protocols at all times!
