Where do the funds raised at OktoberFEAST go?

The proceeds from OktoberFEAST help the Canadian Cancer Society have more impact, against more cancers in more communities than any other cancer charity in Canada. You are helping us to:

  • Fund life-saving cancer research. More people are surviving cancer than ever before. Today, 62% of people diagnosed with cancer will survive compared to only 25% in the 1940s when we began funding research.
  • Stop cancer before it starts. Our researchers are leading the fight to prevent cancer while we promote healthy lifestyles and advocate for policies that protect our health.
  • Ensure no one facing cancer is alone by offering compassionate services and support to those living with cancer.
  • Empower Canadians with information about cancer to help them make informed choices about their health.
