Abbotsford man tops fundraiser in province-wide Workout to Conquer Cancer

Event, held throughout May, raises funds for BC Cancer Foundation

An Abbotsford man was the top fundraiser in the BC Cancer Foundation’s Workout to Conquer Cancer, which was held throughout May.

Randy Ferrario raised $12,000 during the event, which was presented by RYU Apparel.

Workout participants broke a sweat for 31 days straight and fundraised to advance cancer care for patients across the province.

More than 1,300 British Columbians took part, collecting a total of $360,000.

“We truly thank everyone across the province who committed to work out every day in May,” said Sarah Roth, president and CEO of the BC Cancer Foundation. “Your hardworking efforts are providing hope for people facing cancer in our community.”

In its six-year history, Workout has raised more than $2 million to help improve outcomes for patients across B.C.

With one in two British Columbians facing cancer in their lifetime, events like Workout are providing researchers at BC Cancer with the resources to launch new initiatives as well as state-of-the-art tools and equipment to advance patient comfort and care.
