C95’s RADIO MARATHON RAISES $370,034 FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH

The 2015 C95 Radio Marathon for Breast Cancer Research raised $370,034 surpassing $3.9 million dollars raised since the C95 Radio Marathon began 16 years ago. This year’s Marathon showcased stories from breast cancer survivors who turned heartbreak into inspiration.

Kristen Fiolleau, one of the newest C95 Radio Marathon Ambassadors, shared her devastating diagnosis of Stage 4 Breast Cancer for the first time last year. Her only desire is to be a mom to her beautiful daughter Cahllie and wife to Tyler.
“No matter what age you are (I am only 32) or what life experience you have, a cancer diagnosis is devastating, and when you are young and life has just begun, the hurt cannot be described as you face the fear of death and leaving your young family behind. But in this moment, I am here and I am thriving and so now it is time to help by raising awareness and being a part of something greater, and ultimately the only the way to do this is by raising money to help research efforts in order to find a cure.”
Through the support of our listeners, the survivors, community fundraisers, and corporate partners, the C95 Radio Marathon has become the largest and most successful fundraiser in support of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. Donations come from all walks of life and no amount is too small!

All partners involved with the Marathon share the same goal – to find a cure for a merciless disease that knows no boundaries. Proceeds from the Marathon provide resources that help Saskatchewan researchers work toward finding a cure for the affected by breast cancer in Saskatchewan each year.
