Participate in our Events

Members of APCaRI are involved in a wide range of translational, clinical and discovery research events such as scientific conferences and meetings. These meetings help keep us at the forefront of scientific discovery and application. Our scientists and trainees present posters and give talks helping stimulate interest in the overall program by national and international collaborations

We are also invested in the local and provincial community, reaching out to Albertans through many events tied to fundraising and prostate cancer awareness. We work alongside organizations like the Alberta Cancer foundation, Prostate Cancer Canada, MotorCycle Ride for Dad and Movember to help stimulate fundraising as well as provide the donors with a direct link and people to answer questions about where their donated dollars actually go.

The staff at the Alberta Cancer Foundation have harnessed our group for many events since we have arrived in Alberta.

 

APCaRI members participate in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer

Well, we did it!  Several APCaRI members participated in a 2-day major cycling event called the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation. We cycled 228 kms over 2 days along the majestic Rockies with thousands of other Riders, supported by an amazing team of volunteers. Riding along with 34 members of the Cross Cancer Institute Team, and 1741 riders in total, it was an epic experience! The weather could not have been better, it was sunny, warm and the scenery was amazing.
Most importantly, we raised $7.8M to support cutting edge cancer research in Alberta. We are very thankful for the support we received, which will help us to beat prostate cancer.

If you didn’t get a chance to support one of our riders, please consider contributing to the team’s efforts at our DONATE page.
