About Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation
Our vision is a world Beyond Kids Cancer. As Canada’s only national charity devoted to fighting childhood cancer, Coast To Coast Against Cancer Foundation ensures 100% of receipted donations are invested in improving the survival rate and quality of life of children impacted by cancer.
We raise funds by conducting a series of high quality, memorable, physically challenging, national and regional events that encourage active and healthy lifestyles while engaging sponsors, participants, donors and volunteers. From cycling rides to team-building activities, we raise needed funding for worthy childhood cancer charities whose programs support children with cancer and their families.
Where do the Funds go?
The 2016, 2017, and 2018 Tour d’Epicure Niagara events funds are designated to rebuilding aging infrastructure at Camp Trillium.
Camp Trillium offers year-round recreational experiences to bring children with cancer and their families together. The camp programs offer a wide and ever-improving range of program choices to participants including summer campers, off-season rental groups, and family camp attendees.
In 2016 and 2017 the funds raised completely redeveloped the Camp’s high ropes program by replacing the existing high ropes course with more modern and exciting challenge course facilities in addition to making it accessible to wheel-chair bound children.
The 2018 event will fund a new project – the Body Shop Rejuvenation Project. The body shop is where the Healthcare team resides. This team cares for the kids and their families 24 hours a day while at camp. As an integral part of the camp the rejuvenation project will expand the building; increasing accessibility for wheelchairs, creating new private treatment rooms & consultation space, hiring new nursing staff, and so much more! It will be an important expansion for the entire camp and it will be all thanks to you!
We all thank you for making a difference in the lives of children and families effected by cancer by supporting Camp Trillium through your participation in the Tour d’Epicure.
