Blackburn Hamlet Cancer Chase

Rogers TV - Daytime Interview (2017) with Event Chair Bill Horne

Special thanks to Metro Blackburn Shoppes

Cancer Chase deeply appreciates all our sponsors and donors, but we’d like to give a special shout-out to Chris Shaheen, the Store Manager of Blackburn Shoppes Metro. Chris let us use the shopper exit area to solicit donations for numerous Cancer Chase events.

All that money supports cancer research at the world class Ottawa Hospital.

Cancer Chase partners with the Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s Michele Karen Chung Legacy Endowment Fund for Oncology 

In a wonderful example of how chance can bring together like minded partners, the 2017 Cancer Chase partnered with the Michele Karen Chung Fund organizers to benefit cancer fighting causes. 

Briefly, Michele Karen grew up with many close high school friends and connections in Blackburn Hamlet. She had a full and rich life in so many ways, and died of breast cancer at age 29. Her family started a fund at the Ottawa Hospital Foundation to raise money for equipment for cancer patients. Cancer Chase exists to provide funding for cancer research.

The 2017 Cancer Chase took place close to the 15th anniversary of her death and a week after the event she would have been 44. 

We continue to encourage community support of the world class research at the Ottawa Hospital on cancer fighting immune system research.
