2018-05-03 May is #GetYourColourOn Month! Colour Your Hair to Conquer Cancer and Support Cancer Research! Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime. 1 in 2. That’s staggering. Every single one of us will be affected, directly or indirectly, by cancer. I’ve had family members and some of my closest friends already be diagnosed by various forms of cancer. It’s heartbreaking to see someone you love hurting, and terrifying to think that you may face that battle yourself one day. We need to find a cure for cancer in our lifetime, and the dedicated researchers need our help. Period. If you’ve never heard of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation – you’ve been living under a rock. Princess Margaret is one of the top 5 cancer research centers in the world and they have over 1,200 researchers who are dedicated to finding a cure for cancer. I’m sure you’ve heard of their bigger fundraising efforts, such as the Home Lottery – but this year, they’re launching a new fundraising initiative, and let me tell you– it’s definitely going to put the FUN in fundraiser! Get Your Colour On is a bold, fun, new fundraising program that challenges Canadians to colour their hair and raise funds to held conquer cancer in our lifetime. Whether you want to put a team together or go at the challenge solo – it’s up to you. A little too nervous to colour your whole head of hair? No problem – do a few streaks or even an under-colour. And guys, if you’re feeling a little adventurous – why not colour your beard or mustache? In this inaugural year of Colour Your Hair to Conquer Cancer we are reminded why we take on bold, and in this case fun challenges, and fundraise to support cancer research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. The funds you raise or the donation you make will be supporting The Princess Margaret, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world. The Princess Margaret is transforming cancer care for Canadians thanks to advances in technology and new innovative therapies, fueled by the innovation of our cancer experts, and the generosity of our community.
