World Kidney Cancer Day

June 22 is the first World Kidney Cancer Day where international kidney cancer communities raise awareness and funds for kidney cancer.

Kidney Cancer Canada marks World Kidney Cancer Day through a number of initiatives to help improve the lives of patients and their families. You will see kidney cancer information awareness campaign combined along with a campaign to raise much needed money for research and to support our free patient programs.

During the month of June, we are asking you to set up your own in-person or virtual fundraising event in your community leading up to World Kidney Cancer Day on June 22.

Events can be simple; you can organize a car wash or yard sale, you can host a dinner with friends, you could set up a 5km walk, you could tee up a golf tournament or you can arrange a casino night – the ideas are endless.

Kidney Cancer Canada is here to help you with communication tools, tips on how to create an event and our easy-to-use fundraising website.
