For more details about the 2018 North Shore Daffodil Dash, check out our Dash Event Schedule and Run Route.


This Daffodil Month, add a spring to your step with the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Dash - a 1k walk and 5k run (and don't forget the mini dash for the kids!) that raises funds for cancer research and prevention and support for people living with the disease right now.

It's time to brighten things up. Put on your sunniest yellow outfit, grab your friends and be part of this fun, family-friendly event. There are great prizes for the wackiest, craziest, yellow-est costumes, so be bold, have fun, and be part of this community event to help fight cancer.

When you support the Canadian Cancer Society you have more impact against more cancers in more communities than with any other charity. Money raised through the Daffodil Dash supports outstanding research, provides information and support to people facing cancer and helps develop prevention strategies to stop cancer from happening in the first place.

Run solo, bring the family or team up with your friends or colleagues to what promises to be a dazzling day of running, fundraising and fun. 

LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS! Join our fun, passionate, awesome group of event volunteers. Register today!
