About Us

The Cure Cancer Classic is a student-run non-for-profit executive team with a mission to drop the gloves against cancer and support those currently battling, living with, and moving past the disease in the best way we know how. Hockey is a passion that unites many Canadians, and as fans and players of the sport, it inspires and ignites our battle.

Our team is composed of 33 driven, energetic and passionate Queen's Commerce and Engineering students with a work hard, play hard attitude.
The Cure Cancer Classic initiative began in 2005 in the Commerce Class COMM 351: Leadership and Organizational Behaviour. The summative project of the class is to start an initiative that makes a positive impact on your community.
Jared March, COMM '06, initiated the Comm-Ivey Rivalry Game, bringing students at the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western across the province to play for bragging rights in Kingston. The project was well-supported and grew into an annual initiative, gathering a larger portfolio of events along the way.
Cure Cancer Classic is a part of the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative, founded by the NHL to unite the hockey community in support of cancer patients and their families.
In 2019, the Canadian Cancer Society assisted us in securing a partnership with Annie Huang's Brain Cancer Research Lab at Sick Kids Hospital. Through a government grant, CCC's Donation will be matched each year; doubling our impact.
