About

Are you a team player looking for an opportunity to make a positive impact in your community? Help the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Campaign in the fight against cancer.

Funds raised through the sale of pins and fresh daffodils during the Daffodil Campaign will lead crucial cancer prevention initiatives, fund lifesaving research, and deliver trusted information and compassionate support to people living with cancer and their caregivers. April is the month to fight back!

The designated locations for these street teams are:

Kerr Street YIG (7190 Kerr Street, Vancouver)
