GOLF fore the CURE
Largest national grassroots female recreational golf program in Canada.
The program was created to grow women’s participation in the game of golf by introducing them to the sport through fun, non-intimidating activities, while also featuring unique partnerships with the Canadian Cancer Society and the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation that add awareness and fundraising components to support the fight against breast cancer. With the help of volunteers from across the country, Golf Fore the Cure has exposed more than 100,000 women to the game of golf and raised over $7 million in support of breast cancer research initiatives over the past 17 years. In Saskatchewan, 11 clubs raised over $23,000 in 2019 (three events held in 2020).
The annual Golf Fore the Cure campaign culminates in a national event that recognizes the outstanding efforts of female golfers from across the country. It is a celebration of the success of the entire Golf Fore the Cure campaign and it recognizes all those that have contributed to a future without breast cancer. In September, individuals, friends, and corporate teams come together to enjoy a great day of golf, food and camaraderie.
