The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation began raising funds for cancer research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in 1982. Since then, the Foundation has raised well over $1 billion for one of the world's top 5 cancer research centres. Relentless in our quest to raise funds to conquer cancer in our lifetime, we launched a 5-year Billion Dollar Challenge in 2012. It was the most ambitious campaign undertaken in Canadian healthcare history, and we are proud to announce we secured the $1 billion ($532 million secured in philanthropic support and $520 million secured in research grants), ahead of schedule. Setting ambitious goals is driven by our culture and our passion to perform. The Foundation has pioneered many successful types of fundraising including mega lotteries and large-scale events recruiting thousands of participants/fundraisers such as our Rexall OneWalk to Conquer Cancer and Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, to name a few.
