Northern Cancer Foundation (NCF)  held its 3rd annual Cancer Centre Walk/Run/Bike for Hope event earlier this June at Kivi Park.

Following the walk Mrs. Lily Fielding again offered to match all the donations that were raised by walkers and donors alike in our community. Earlier this year Mrs. Fielding generously doubled the amount raised from NCF’s  “Trek for Cancer” which was also held at Kivi Park and brought the total raised to over $100,000 for that event.

Mrs. Fielding extended the donation period for a further week and by week’s end with further donations coming in she generously contributed $25,000 to Northern Cancer Foundation.

The NCF was taken by surprise as an anonymous second donor approached NCF with plans to match Mrs. Lily Fielding’s contributions. As such, a second $25,000 donation has been made to the Cancer Centre Walk/Run/Bike for Hope.

The NCF and Kivi Park are very pleased to announce that the total amount raised for the 3rd annual Cancer Centre Walk/Run/Bike for Hope is over $105,000.

“We’re so pleased to have so many great people supporting us. This event was a resounding success and we have a lot of people to thank,” says Tannys Laughren, Executive Director of the Northern Cancer Foundation, “I would be remiss if I didn’t specifically thank Mrs. Lily Fielding and our anonymous donor. Over the years Lily has been one of the cancer centre’s greatest supporters. Lily’s continued generosity has clearly inspired others in our community to do the same, to our anonymous donor thank you from the bottom of our hearts”.

All donations to Northern Cancer Foundation remain in the community and support vital patient care, new equipment purchases and world-class cancer research that takes place here in Greater Sudbury at the Northeast Cancer Centre.
