Thousands of Canadians begin to follow Olympic Gold Medalist in the MOVE to Beat Cancer
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.
“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.”
Move to Beat Cancer is an awareness and fundraising project launched by Kidney Cancer Canada | Cancer du rein Canada in 2018 to support cancer patient programs and research. This year, Testicular Cancer Canada joins the Move and as the annual campaign grows, other underfunded cancer charities will be invited to join.
“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.”
