Welcome to the Team Toughnesspage!

This May we're participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer to get moving and support BC Cancer patients! Our team is joining others across the province and beyond to move, no matter where we are, every single day of the month.

One in two British Columbians are impacted by cancer. Our family has battle it either personally or alongside many of our loved ones over the past 2 decades.Uncle/Scottwas diagnosed with Acute Myloid Lymphoma and is nowcancer free for nearing 11 years thanks to a stem cell transplant made possible by a selfless donor. Myself/Melissa was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in 2014 and I have been cancer free for over 7 years now. Dad/Grandad/Bob was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer last year, thanks to early detection he was able to have a procedure last fall to remove the tumor. We lost Grandma/Carole last summer. She bravely battled gruling treatments forlungcancer, and while doctors gave her less than a year we were lucky to have had4more years of memories with her. We are so thankful for the doctors, nurses and donors that took care of out family during this time and for the friends who continue to support us. This challenge is more than exercise, it's about joining a community who know that we can make an impact for those we love and have loved. This is personal.

Whether we run, walk, stretch or squat, every move we make and dollar we raise will be in support of the 77,000 people facing cancer this year across British Columbia.

So, as we get ready to sweat our way through May, please show your support by making a donation to our team today.

Consider moving with us, and join our team! We can work out and fundraise together for this very important cause.

Thank you!
