The 7DIM Corporate Sponsorship Package

Report
7 Days In May
2014 Information Package
What Is 7 Days In May?
• 7 Days In May is a movement that started in 2012
to raise awareness and funds to cure Pancreatic
Cancer
• Physical activity is key to preventing the onset of
Pancreatic Cancer, so Cycling was chosen as the
focal activity
• 7 Days In May involves a 1 Day Event on May 3rd,
2014 in several cities across Canada and a 7 Day
ride around Lake Ontario (May 3rd – 9th)
Why Pancreatic Cancer?
• Over 4300 new cases will be diagnosed in Canada this year
• 75% of the patients will die in the first year following diagnosis
• 95% of Pancreatic Cancer patients will die within 5 years
• Pancreatic Cancer is the 10th most diagnosed form of cancer &
the 4th leading cause of death
• Because these statistics have not improved in 40 years
• In 2012, less than 2% of general funding for cancer was targeted
to Pancreatic Cancer
• It’s time to change these statistics and give those diagnosed
hope and a better a chance to live

The 7 Days In May
Foundation
•
The 7 Days In May Foundation was created in 2013 with a mission that is dedicated to
finding a cure for Pancreatic Cancer
•
All funds raised will be directed to preventative and palliative medical research for
Pancreatic Cancer
•
In 2014, we will be supporting the NCIC Clinical Trials Group in Kingston, ON who are
conducting their 6th pancreatic cancer trial at sites across Canada. Funds will be
directed through the Canadian Cancer Society, who have partnered with 7 Days In May
to make this donation possible.
•
The NCIC Clinical Trials Group focused on “gastrointestinal” cancers – from esophageal
to colon cancer. 7 Days In May will focus on Pancreatic Cancer, but the benefits will
extend beyond just Pancreatic Cancer treatment
•
100% of funds raised will go directly to the trial program
•
The 7 Days In May Foundation and our partners will cover any necessary administrative
costs and fees
