The Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation (CTCACF) which operates Tour For Kids, The Inside Ride, and the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride, is dedicated to improving the quality of life and the survival rates of children and adolescents with cancer. The Foundation organizes a series of high quality, physically energizing fundraising events that support transition and survivorship programs, research and education initiatives, as well as pediatric oncology camps. In Canada, over 10,000 children live with cancer or its long term effects, with an additional 1,700 children diagnosed with cancer each year.
Our objective is to direct 100% of the funds we raise to programs and charities that improve the survival rates and quality of life of children and their families living with and beyond cancer:
Transition and Survivorship: Specifically programs that provide ongoing treatment and support for childhood cancer survivors, particularly those suffering from late effects of the disease and its treatment.
Research: Specifically investigative research that explores treatments for the toughest and most lethal childhood cancers as well as treatments that prevent toxicities or adverse affects in later life.
Education: Specifically programs that fund scholarships for research and work in the area of pediatric oncology as well as select programs that facilitate greater collaboration and information sharing among pediatric oncology researchers and practitioners.
Since its inception just a few short years ago, Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation has raised over $14 million to support charities across Canada who collectively help children across this country fighting this devastating disease.
