C95’s Radio Marathon Raises $300,036
The 2017 C95 Radio Marathon for Breast Cancer Research raised $300,036 with over $4.3 million dollars raised since the C95 Radio Marathon began 18 years ago. This year’s Marathon showcased stories from breast cancer survivors who turned heartbreak into inspiration.
Joanne Nagy shared her story of being diagnosed with Breast Cancer just one month shy of her son’s third birthday.
“My breath was taken away. I felt the blood rush to my feet and all I could hear was my little boy’s voice echoing in my head. I didn’t want him to grow up without a mommy.”
Joanne’s hope is that through sharing her story, she can encourage women to take charge of their health, do monthly self exams, and be a source of strength and inspiration.
Through the support of our listeners, the survivors, community fundraisers, and corporate partners, the C95 Radio Marathon has become the largest and most successful fundraiser in support of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. Donations come from all walks of life and no amount is too small!
Here are just a few of the outstanding donations made today:
- Cabaret for the Cure $10,000
- Saskatoon Firefighters $10,000
- Saskatoon Medical Imaging $10,000
- Pink Warrior $10,000
- Wild Pink Yonder Charitable Society $9,200
- Darren Ulmer Financial & Insurance Services Ltd. $7,816

We also received an incredible $100,000 donation from an anonymous donor! Thank you to everyone in Saskatchewan who got involved and donated generously.
All partners involved with the Marathon share the same goal – to find a cure for a merciless disease that knows no boundaries. Proceeds from today’s event will be used by the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency to provide resources that help Saskatchewan researchers work toward finding new treatments for those affected by breast cancer in Saskatchewan each year.
What is the C95 Radio Marathon?
The C95 Radio Marathon for Breast Cancer Research began in October of 2000 when C95’s Morning Show host, Lisa Rendall, was diagnosed with breast cancer. For over fifteen years, the C95 team has worked tirelessly to raise awareness within our community and funds for the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency Research Department. We have surpassed four million dollars since the since the Radio Marathon began, making it the largest and most successful fundraising event supporting the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency!
Every year, over 700 Saskatchewan women are diagnosed with breast cancer. It’s one of the most common forms of cancer, and very treatable if detected early. Understanding how breast cancer develops and why it spreads is a key focus of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency’s research team at the Saskatoon Cancer Centre.

It is the stories shared by the individuals affected by breast cancer that drives C95 Radio Marathon every year. These courageous people make us want to continue to provide resources to Saskatchewan researchers to find new treatments that could help save lives.
