Run for GRRCC

Choose an amount to donate


JAN 2024 Update:

We are pleased to announce that after our 2023 events, $13,078 was raised toward the purchase of a Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Board! ​Together​, with the assistance of other contributions specifically designated for the equipment, we are pleased to begin the process of purchasing a second SBRT Board for the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre.

This year the team is aiming high, raising funds for a much needed Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Board. 
These boards are precise, stable and easy to use that enables clinicians to apply the most effective radiation treatment methods for thoracic and abdominal tumours. Having this type of equipment and care means our friends and family can receive cancer treatment close to home and don’t have to travel to other hospitals outside Waterloo Region

Message from Rich Peers

Run-Walk for GRRCC was born out of a calling to give back. My father passed away from Pancreatic Cancer in 2015. The care and compassion he received at Grand River Regional Cancer Centre is something my family will never forget. Supporters of our event also have a connection to the Cancer Centre. They want to ensure residents of Waterloo Region and Guelph Wellington will have access to the best cancer care close to home. This event could not be possible without the commitment from the fundraising team, friends, volunteers and our tremendous support  partners in the community. 2022 marked our 7th annual Run-Walk, together with my team we have raised $60,000! This year we are aiming high, we are raising funds for a much-needed Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Board.  

2023 Team: Jeremy, Nat, Rebecca, Merlin, Amanda, Shannon, Sandi & Rich
