Get Up There

We may not be able to move mountains, but we can climb them

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death in Nova Scotia, so we wanted to do something exciting to raise awareness, raise funds for research, and convince Nova Scotians to get tested. In 2009, we formed Get Up There for Colorectal Cancer: an exciting day of hiking and skiing at Ski Wentworth. See you at the top!

With the proceeds of the event, we created an awareness campaign that runs in partnership with Bell Media to remind eligible people to complete their colorectal cancer screening kit. An estimated 300 Nova Scotian lives have been saved as a direct result of this screening program to date.
