Every Northern Pass has the potential to help save a life.

Each Northern Pass event helps transform the way we look at cancer here in Canada and around the world. Since 2017, this unique ride has raised an incredible $3.6 MILLION for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

The funds raised directly support over 1,300 researchers and scientists at The Princess Margaret who show up each day and push the boundaries of cancer care.   

In fact, The Princess Margaret is home to several hundred “world-firsts” in cancer research thanks to your hardworking fundraising dollars.  
 

Here are some of The Princess Margaret’s greatest breakthroughs:

  • We revolutionized the world’s understanding of cancer.

  • We pioneered immunotherapy, a less toxic alternative to chemotherapy.

  • We developed a blood test with the potential to change how cancer is detected.
