7 DAYS IN MAY 2021
A virtual cycling event open across Canada!
We’re virtual in 2021!
Due to the ongoing challenges with the Covid-19 pandemic, 7 Days In May is going entirely virtual for 2021. This is an exciting opportunity as we can welcome participants from across Canada to join in on fun new challenges and help us raise the rate of pancreatic cancer survival by supporting innovative research. The funds raised from 7 Days In May make a huge impact and in 2021 we hope this event will raise the $125,000 needed to pass the $1,000,000 grand total! Let’s work together to raise the rate of pancreatic cancer survival.
The virtual event will be open for the entire month of May, plus a few days in early June to coincide with what would have been the completion of the original 7 day ride (May 29th – June 4th). Our hope is that each participant can be active on May 29th and 30th, but every day in the time period from May 1st to June 4th will count! The fact that you’re taking part is the most important thing. Have some fun. Ride your bike inside or outside. Raise funds and awareness!
Dates: May 1st – June 4th, 2021
7 Days In May is a cycling event and fundraiser that was founded in 2012 to increase awareness about pancreatic cancer and to raise funds to help find a cure for this deadly affliction. The statistics are staggering: 92% of those diagnosed will die within 5 years. 75% of patients will die within the first year following diagnosis. Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in Canada. Survival rates have not improved in the last 40 years – it’s time to change those statistics.
7 Days In May was founded by the Townley family in memory of Lorraine Townley to continue her legacy by raising the awareness and funds necessary to cure pancreatic cancer. Through the PancOneTM initiative of Pancreatic Cancer Canada, all proceeds will be directed towards clinical trials and other direct studies, focused on early detection and a cure as well as providing support and education for those impacted by the disease.
We're here to help!
