How we started
In 2009, a group of regular women, mothers & friends across Alberta, decided to join forces and walk 60 kms through downtown Calgary, AB for The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers. Each participant needed to raise $2,000 just to walk. Over 4 years our group raised over $100,000. After those 4 years, organizers canceled the walk, due to lack of support. Our group was devastated. In 2013 our group decided to raise money on our own.
In 2017 we decided to use our funds to more directly benefit those with breast cancer. We have now partnered with The Lloydminster Health Foundation, and have created the I Love Alberta Boobs Assistance Fund. We will now be donating money to breast cancer fighters here in the Lloydminster and surrounding areas. Those currently fighting breast cancer can apply on our website or can be nominated by someone else. We will be giving out these assistance funds 4 times a year.
Since 2010 we have put on a rock concert called Rock for a Cure, in Lloydminster, SK. We have had such bands as Tupelo Honey, Default, The Trews, and Bret Michaels of Poison, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row, Art of Dying and Chronic Rock. We also hold a silent & live auction, 50/50 draw, and much more. In the years we have been holding this event, we have raised $250,000!
All of this would not be possible without the support from businesses, friends, family, and the community. We appreciate everyone’s continued support, and thank you for your consideration.
