Inspiring support for prostate cancer research at the 2015 CCI Golf Classic

Members of the APCaRI team felt very fortunate yesterday to participate in the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s 27th Annual Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic – a wonderful event that has raised more than $10 million to pioneer revolutionary projects in support of patients at Alberta’s own Cross Cancer Institute and beyond. And the event yesterday was truly inspiring for me and our team! Thanks to the kindness and overwhelming generosity of the many sponsors and attendees, and the spectacular efforts of MC and auctioneer Danny Hooper, more than $1.1M was raised to support cutting edge research into cancer metastasis and the clinical study of our new blood and urine tests for aggressive prostate cancer.

Heartfelt thanks to the amazing volunteers, the organizing committee, the Alberta Cancer Foundation, and all of the participants and donors who attended the event!
