On March 8, 2014 Workout to Conquer Cancer raised $379,000 to power cancer research in BC. The full-day of workout sessions that took place at Richmond Olympic Oval included Zumba, Afro-Brazilian Dance, Fusion Kickboxing, Rock Your Core-Barre Fitness, and Retro Aerobics. On hand to treat participants with massage and physio services were two dedicated volunteers from LifeMark-Centric Health, Paula Portnoi and Warren Nicholls, both Registered Physiotherapists at the LifeMark Chinatown Clinic.

“I thought it was a great event,” said Warren Nicholls. “It was well run and it was awesome to see so many people getting fit while raising money for a good cause.” The momentous occasion to accelerate cancer research for the BC Cancer Foundation raised $379,000 to support BC based, world-leading research at the BC Cancer Agency.

Workout to Conquer Cancer stated that Douglas Nelson, President and CEO of the BC Cancer Foundation, took a moment between Workout sessions to give thanks to participants for providing new hope to the more than 24,000 British Columbians who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. “Cause, community and camaraderie have all come together to affect widespread change, giving cancer patients and their families the courage to hope and oncologists the confidence to say cure,” he said.

The day ended on an inspirational high, as hundreds of British Columbians celebrated the tremendous impact of the funds raised on the future of cancer care and making a difference in the lives of those diagnosed with cancer in the province.
