Funds raised from The BIG RIDE go directly to advance cancer research through the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute at Dalhousie University.
The Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute was created in 2009 to foster a collaborative, productive and capacity-building cancer research effort in Atlantic Canada.
Although based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute brings together a diverse community of cancer researchers in pursuit of a common goal: to save lives and ease the burden of cancer on individuals, families and society.
The Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute is named in grateful memory of the late Mrs. Beatrice Hunter, who in 1999, bequeathed $12.5 million to the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation for cancer research, in memory of her parents, Dr. Owen and Mrs. Pearle Cameron. The bequest was placed in the Cameron Endowment Fund, which generates approximately $500,000 per year for cancer research at Dalhousie Medical School.
The Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute aims to build a cancer research effort that:
encompasses all aspects of cancer research,
transforms our understanding of cancer,
pioneers major improvements in cancer treatments and care,
discovers ways to detect cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages,
discovers ways to prevent cancer progression and metastasis, and
is a leading force in cancer research in Canada.
“I can’t find words to thank you enough for all the wonders you have accomplished. In my eyes, this is quite a miracle. I know how much work you have done and you made it happen!”
