The Cure Cancer Classic is a student-run, not-for-profit organization 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 36 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'. As the class's summative project, students were tasked with launching an initiative to make an impact on their community.
Jared March (COMM '06) created the Comm-Ivey Rivalry Game, which brought students from the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University across Ontario to play for bragging rights in Kingston. The project gained significant support and evolved into an annual initiative. Today, the Cure Cancer Classic proudly hosts a wide range of events, reflecting our ongoing commitment to our cause.
The Cure Cancer Classic is proud to be a part of the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative, established by the NHL to unite the hockey community in solidarity with cancer patients and their families.
This year, all donations will be matched to support the vital work of the Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Cancer Trials Group.
