Drive for Thrive Golf Tournament

May 30

Welcome to our sign-up page for the 7th Drive for Thrive Golf Tournament. Since our inaugural Drive for Thrive tournament in 2015, we have raised over $300,000 to support the Thrive Centre, trained over 700 graduate and undergraduate student volunteers, purchased new exercise equipment for our gym space, and expanded our programs to community locations across Calgary and Canada. This has resulted in more than 3000 cancer survivors going through our exercise programing since 2011 and over 15,000 hours of program delivery. None of this would have been possible without the support and unwavering commitment of our community sponsors, donors, and volunteers.

All funds raised at this event support our exercise oncology studies and programs, as we research and implement sustainable community-based programs in Calgary, across Alberta, and across Canada. Support will ensure we can hire the best exercise professionals required to expand our programs and reach more cancer survivors. Our exercise oncology programs, including ACE (Alberta Cancer Exercise), EXCEL (EXercise for Cancer to Enhance Living Well), and tailored programs for brain tumour patients and head and neck cancer, must become standard as supportive cancer care resources. We are committed to working with our health care system to ensure sustainable implementation – so that all individuals living with cancer can access exercise resources.
