Toronto, Ontario, Tuesday August 7, 2019 –Olympic Gold Medalist, Adam Kreek is on the MOVE to Beat Cancer to inspire others to get their MOVE on and support patient programs and research.

Canadians can begin today to sign up at movetobeatcancer.org and pledge to join Adam in their self-designed MOVE and complete their campaign from Monday September 16 to Sunday September 22, 2019.

“I am thrilled to lead this year’s event” says the Canadian rowing legend and executive coach, “You can choose your own way to MOVE, your own MOVE date and where you want MOVE.”

“Kidney and testicular cancer are vastly underfunded in the area of research in Canada” says Kidney Cancer Canada Executive Director Stephen Andrew, “Donors to MOVE to Beat Cancer are helping to save lives and advance treatment options.”

“The best way to raise awareness is to make people participate in an activity. What better way than to make them MOVE?” adds Alexandre Désy, Executive Director of Testicular Cancer Canada. “Together and through action we change the world.”
