As part of their commitment to promoting healthy, active lifestyles through various sponsorships from coast to coast, Subaru Canada is proud to help grow the game of golf in Canada and stand alongside thousands of compassionate women across Canada to help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Golf Canada and the Canadian Cancer Society first partnered to engage women in golf while raising funds for the breast cancer cause. Breast cancer is still the most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among women in Canada. The Canadian Cancer Society is funding more groundbreaking breast cancer research than any other national charity — and tremendous progress is being made. With the support of partners like Golf Canada, the Canadian Cancer Society can continue funding high-quality breast cancer research, educating women about early detection, and providing information and support services to those living with breast cancer, ensuring no woman is alone in her journey. The Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation remains hopeful that it will accomplish even more, so that fewer and fewer people will die from this disease.

By Claire Brownell. The issue: Cancer research funding comes from hundreds of charities and government agencies — all with competing priorities. The solution: Consolidate the number of charities raising the funds and the number of agencies distributing them to get the best value for each dollar spent. Lung is the deadliest cancer, accounting for one-quarter of cancer deaths by killing 20, Canadians each year — more than breast, colorectal and prostate cancers combined. Yet when it comes to Canadian research funding directed at specific types of cancer, the numbers are flipped.
