On August 14, 2016, Stephen Schwartz, Partner at Burns Fitzpatrick, will be participating in the 9th Annual Glotman-Simpson Cypress Challenge.
Stephen will cycle up Cypress Mountain in support of life-saving pancreatic cancer research at the BC Cancer Agency.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all cancers and remains a leading cause of cancer death. Despite being one of the deadliest cancers, a recent Cancer in Canada study reported that pancreatic cancer research is also one of the most underfunded, with only 0.1% of all charitable monies raised attributed specifically to this cause.
By raising awareness and funds, the Glotman-Simpson Cypress Challenge is helping to change the story and improve outcomes for future pancreatic cancer patients.
Over the last eight years, the Cypress Challenge has raised more than $1.6 million for pancreatic cancer research. This year’s goal is to reach $2 million. 100% of the funds raised will go towards pancreatic cancer research.
