DIY and help millions of people living with cancer

It doesn’t matter how you get there, you can walk, ride, bake, make or build to raise funds. All proceeds go to the same place, The Princess Margaret. From there, they will directly support the scientists and researchers who lead the way in global cancer care. And the best part is, you choose the area of research that those funds are directed to.
