PEAKS along with local talent Onionface and Abstraction were proud to present an evening of music at LIVE! On Elgin to raise funds to support The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to increasing cancer survivorship in Eastern Ontario through patient care and research to prevent, detect, diagnose and cure cancer.
In 2015, an estimated 196,900 new cases of cancer and 78,000 deaths from cancer were expected to occur. A 2012 report showed Ottawa cancer rates to be the highest in the entire province. Over the last year PEAKS has felt the harsh reality of these statistics from having family and friends face the painful diagnoses, treatment, and illness first hand. Our goal is to do what we can to try to support our community and raise funds to find better treatments.
The entire PEAKS family would like to thank everyone for giving generously through ticket sales and donations as we made this an unforgettable evening. With your aid we managed to raise $683.50 to go directly to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
