Money raised through Jump for a Cure will go toward Kids Cancer Care’s therapeutic, recreational and educational online and in-person programs.

“Fundraising is tough right now because everyone is hurting. I applaud them for taking action – especially in these challenging times,” said Christine McIver, founder and CEO of Kids Cancer Care.

In keeping with provincial health guidelines, guests will be wearing masks and maintain a safe physical distance from others.
