adidas Golf – Official Apparel Partner
As a pink partner of Golf Fore the Cure, adidas Canada will provide uniforms for each site coordinator and National Event participant, a $100 online gift card for the leading fundraiser of each event and full outfits for the top-three fundraising teams at the National Event. adidas has a lengthy history of supporting recreational sport and we are thrilled to align their brand with Golf Fore the Cure.
Canadian Cancer Society – Charity Partner
The Canadian Cancer Society funds only the best cancer research in Canada. Our researchers are working hard to learn more about what causes breast cancer so that one day it might be preventable, while others are finding new and better ways to detect, diagnose and treat the disease. The Canadian Cancer Society supports the broadest range of research projects directly and indirectly related to breast cancer in Canada. The work of Society-funded researchers is making a difference and saving lives.
All of the funds raised through Golf Fore the Cure will be designated back to the provinces in which they were raised to help support Canadian Cancer Society-funded breast cancer research and programs and services for women living with breast cancer.
On average, one in nine Canadian women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime and one in 27 will die from the disease. As we face this harsh reality there is hope. Breast cancer death rates have declined steadily since 1986 due to improved screening programs and treatments. These advances have been made possible, in part, through Canadian Cancer Society-funded research.
Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation – Charity Partner
For ten years, golf clubs in Quebec that participate in this program have donated over $850,000 to the Foundation. Events who support the Foundation can donate directly online and all funds raised are designated to the three province-wide branches available through the Foundation; research, awareness and support programs/initiatives.
The Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation remains hopeful that it will accomplish even more, so that fewer and fewer people will die from this disease.
The Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation is a registered charitable organization established in 1994 on the initiative of Pam McLernon. Its original name was the Montreal Breast Cancer Foundation. Initially, the Foundation’s objectives were to provide assistance to women with breast cancer and to support medical research on the disease. Our mission still encompasses those original goals, but has gradually expanded to include activities focused on breast health awareness and education.
Since its inception, the Foundation, which became the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation in 2003, has experienced remarkable growth, thanks to generous donations from its partners and the public. Today, we are proud to fund major research projects in Quebec, while continuing to encourage Quebecers to adopt healthy lifestyles, and to support thousands of breast cancer sufferers in their struggle with the disease.
Since 1994, we have invested more than $23 million in research, education and awareness, and support programs. Thanks to the sustained generosity of people like you, the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation remains hopeful that it will accomplish even more, so that fewer and fewer people will die from this disease.

“I’m very proud to be partnering with Golf Canada’s Golf Fore The Cure presented by Subaru program again this year. This program continues to gain strength across Canada. It not only raises money to find a cure for breast cancer but it gets women interested in this great game of golf. It is an amazing initiative and I’m honoured to be affiliated with Golf Fore The Cure.”
Alena Sharp (LPGA Tour Player)
“Golf Canada’s Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru is a program I’m proud to be associated with. As an ambassador for the last couple of years I have seen the positive changes that the program is making. What’s better than hitting the links with a few girlfriends and at the same time helping raise money “Fore the Cure.”
Evanka Osmak (Anchor, Rogers Sportsnet)
“I am pleased to be joining as an ambassador the Golf Canada’s Golf Fore the Cure Program presented by Subaru Program. Pairing women’s golf along with the Canadian Cancer Society and the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation is a great initiative in promoting the game and saving lives. This program has been making a difference (on and off the course) for so many women in creating a sense of community along with raising over 5.4 million dollars for the fight against breast cancer. It is a great cause that I am honored to support and I am looking forward to get involved with Golf Fore the Cure.”
Anne-Catherine Tanguay (LPGA member)
I am so proud to be partnering with Golf Canada’s Golf Fore the Cure presented by Subaru. Breast cancer affects so many women globally and it is a cause that is dear to my heart. I am honored to support breast cancer awareness and women’s health through the game that I love. “Support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the taken and never, ever give up on hope”.
Jennifer Ha (LPGA member)
