Sarah’s Fund for the Cedars Cancer Foundation Celebrates the 16th Annual Splash & Dash

Montreal, November 6th, 2017— Bright and early on Saturday, November 4th, 2017, over 500 people including 300 race participants gathered at the McGill Sports Complex for the 16th edition of Splash & Dash, which raises funds for Sarah’s Floor at the Montreal Children’s Hospital through Sarah’s Fund for the Cedars Cancer Foundation. Each team made up of three people ranged from families with young children to corporate teams. What these teams all had in common was a desire to bring awareness, raise necessary funds and help Sarah’s Fund and the Cedars Cancer Foundation Go Beyond their wildest dreams for paediatric oncology, by raising over $230,000.

Splash & Dash raises money for Sarah’s Fund, founded in 2001 by a then 8-year old girl undergoing treatment for Ewing’s Sarcoma. Since its inception Sarah’s Fund has raised over $12 million to support the needs of the Hematology-Oncology division at The Montreal Children’s Hospital.

All races that took place throughout the day had three components: run – swim – run or swim– bike – run! The high energy, family friendly competition was accentuated by the spirited music, blow up attractions, fantastic food and tantalizing raffle prizes!

The annual Heroes & Celebrity race was as always, the day’s highlight. Local Montreal celebrities raced with the true heroes of the day, the patients of Sarah’s Floor. With bright smiles and resilience that inspired all who attended – the day’s participants gathered to watch the Heroes race; a powerful reminder as to why the Montreal community has come together for the past 16 years for Splash & Dash and Sarah’s Fund for the Cedars Cancer Foundation.  

The 16th edition of Splash & Dash would not have been possible without the incredible help of the Gold Sponsors: Pfizer, BMO Nesbitt Burns - Tim Andersen, Christina Miller Real Estate Group, Gildan, Kamik, Nova Steel, Rossy Family Foundation, Summit Maritime Corporation, 3Macs/Raymond James. A huge thank you as well to the Race Sponsors: Argus Transport Canada, CN, CroweBGK, Fednav, Philhobar and Sigvaris, The day would not have been the success it was without the dedication, enthusiasm and support of our volunteers.

All proceeds from Splash & Dash will support Sarah’s Fund for Cedars Cancer Foundation who has made its mission to make a meaningful difference in every child’s life that has been touched by cancer at the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

The mission of the Cedars Cancer Foundation is to support the Cedars Cancer Centre at the MUHC and Sarah’s Floor at the Montreal Children’s Hospital by providing exceptional patient care, treatment, research and training benefitting the Cedars’ pediatric, young adult, palliative and adult philanthropic missions.
