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 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

Sandi: I've participated in many events that raise awareness for the Canadian Cancer Society simply because Cancer touches the lives of everyone. In January 2010 my dad passed away after a courageous battle with Cancer. We spent many hours at the GRRCC. Sadly I've had people I care about battle Kidney Cancer, Leukemia, Melanoma, Breast Cancer and currently my mother in law is battling Lung Cancer.

I'm beyond honoured to join Rich in the Job Runners Couriers 24 hour walk in Kitchener to support Grand River Regional Cancer Centre. It's the least I can do in order to support, fundraise and show I care and want to help my community, neighbours, friends, and families as they face this battle.

(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!

Derek H
It’s an honour to be walking 24hrs supporting the GRH Cancer Centre. For over a decade I’ve been involved in raising funds, awareness and quality of life with those that are or have been affected by Cancer. Walking is a form of exercise that WILL raise your quality of life. So, help me, you, help others improve their quality of life by donating or showing your support when I walk the Job Runner Courier's 24hr Walk in Kitchener.

Merlin F: The reason I want to be involved with this event is less personal for me (tho my mother passed away from liver and lung cancer in '12) Mostly I would like to "make a difference" - as this money goes entirely and directly to GRH, I appreciate that this will make an improvement to the care that each patient receives at GRRCC.

Jeremy F:  24hrs of walking to end cancer....through joining fellow mates.....who will be pushing through with efforts to end cancer. Through a periodic check, my mother learned she was already at stage 4 cancer and had 6months to live. Exactly 6 months later she was gone. Putting efforts into this 24hr Walk for me, is contributing a day of steps going forward toward proactively battling this disease that takes many people's lives and families away from them"
