C95 Radio Marathon

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 eighteen 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 4.3 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.

Breast Cancer Statistics

  • In 2018, there will be an estimated 750 new cases of breast cancer in Saskatchewan.
  • In 2018, Saskatchewan will lose approximately one hundred and sixty mothers… sisters… aunts… friends… coworkers to breast cancer.
  • One in eight Canadian women is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime.
  • Approximately 3 Canadian women are diagnosed with breast cancer every hour.

Together, we can change the future of breast cancer in our province.
