Coast to Coast Launches 2014 Tour for Kids

Published June 5, 2014.

Camp Quality Canada is honoured to be the recipient of Coast To Coast Against Cancer Foundation’s extraordinary generosity. Over the past 5 years, they have donated more than $1.4 million dollars to Camp Quality, raised through their numerous high caliber events including Tour for Kids and Ride for Karen.

The funding CQ receives from CTCACF supports our national initiatives including sending over 375 campers with cancer to camp this summer. It helps us to work closely with our 450 volunteers to nurture our campers and develop our programs that take place throughout the year in order to ensure that children with cancer, and their families, are supported in a year round relationship with CQ.

CTCACF also supports our educational Puppet Program that reaches over 23,000 elementary school children each year. The Puppet Program teaches about cancer and its effects while encouraging empathy and friendship. Performed by our 8 teams across the country, the presentation is available free of charge thanks to the support of CTCACF.
