Compete For The Cure (CFTC) 2017, now in its 4th year, is a charity sports event for high school students in support of Pancreatic Cancer Canada.

CFTC is being held on Sunday, January 15 at HoopDome, located at 75 Carl Hall Road in Toronto. It features male basketball, male dodgeball, female dodgeball tournaments while engaging youth, from across the GTA, to support pancreatic cancer research and help improve patient outcomes for this deadly disease.

Last year, 41 teams and 360 students took part in this event. The day was a HUGE SUCCESS. Thanks to the generosity of event sponsors and participants, more than $125,000 was raised with all net proceeds donated to Pancreatic Cancer Canada to support lifesaving research!
