My Message

On October 12, 2019, Rich Peers and Friends will be Run/Walking the Job Runner Courier’s 24hr Run in Kitchener. This is the 4th year we will be raising funds for the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre at Grand River Hospital in an effort to give back.

Rich Peers - Supporting the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre is a very important to me, as my Father spent his final weeks there. The care and attention he was given is something that I will never take for granted. The compassion and care that the staff gave to him and my family in his final weeks is something I will never forget.

(The Vikings) Rachael & Nick - When my Dad lost his battle in 1992, at the age of 36, the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre was still a decade away from opening its doors. But that didn't mean the staff at KW hospital didn't do their best for patient and family care during the whirlwind diagnosis, treatment, and palliative stages. I was seven.  Fast forward to my early 20s, the GRRCC was up and running in full swing for a few years by the time my fiancee was diagnosed. Right there, in the GRRCC, during countless chemo trips, we ended up planning most of our up coming (never to be for various reasons) wedding. All I remember is the level of patient care and the incredible staff making every hard step, a little bit more bearable. The same as they had done so many years before. 

When you, or someone you love, is going through such a life altering experience, you deserve the best of the best care. As much as I hope cancer will be a word of the past, I'm so honored to be fundraising and participating for a service that is needed by far for so many!
