About Us

Who We Serve

The Kids with Cancer Society strongly believes that comprehensive family centered programs are essential to effectively treat children with cancer.

In order to meet the needs of the whole child and their families from the time of diagnosis, throughout treatment, survivorship and beyond, programs are developed that address the support, clinical and research needs of our children.

Programs and services provided by the Society supports the following:

Why We Exist

The Society exists because no other organization or hospital facility provides the necessary resources to adequately address the program and support needs of children with cancer and their families. The Kids with Cancer Society receives limited attention yet it provides more direct support and services for children with cancer than all other Northern Alberta charities combined. In this regard it is important to note that all programs and services initiated by the Society are designed to either enhance or create new opportunities thereby ensuring that there is no duplication or overlap of resources and services.

Road closures will be in effect on Saturday, June 24 from from 8 am – 6 pm.

Racing for a Cure Event

On Saturday June 23rd, as a group with a police escort the exotic cars will leave the Southside Save-on-Foods meeting area and head to the Kids with Cancer Society House. Once there the drivers/owners of the exotic cars will rendezvous with their assigned VIP cancer child. The exotic cars will be staged out in front of the house to receive the very important riders. Once all the exotic car owners/drivers have their riders, as a group we will head out on an amazing journey throughout the city with an incredible police escort. These kids will be treated and feel like true Rock Stars while immersed in the passenger seats of these high octane exotics cruising the city streets with a full police escort. It is going to be Epic!

he group ride will travel throughout the city of Edmonton and will take them past several historic landmarks and onto some of the city’s most famous roads. We will then make our way to the Legislative grounds where the fifty million dollars’ worth of exotic cars will be parked to show them off to the public with the legislative festivities running from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. We will have live entertainment on the legislative grounds stage and a large amount of activities for the VIP kids/families and public to participate in. It will be an exciting family fun day for all ages! The money raised from this event will help the affected cancer children and their families in profound life changing ways. They all thank you from the bottom of their hearts.

This amazing event has been an overwhelming success thanks to all the sponsors, drivers, riders, volunteers, charities and organizers. We could not have done it without you! Thank you for your help. Please come out and give generously.
