Wake Up Call Breakfast

wuc_logo.pngWake Up Call Breakfast is a unique opportunity to support the 1 in 9 Canadian men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. It brings together business leaders in an event tailor made for them, to raise awareness and funds for the most common cancer affecting Canadian men.

Since its inception in 2001, it has attracted over 50,000 across the country. Attendees include financial services organizations, community groups, private equity, law, accounting, and consulting firms, in addition to many individuals.
Update for 2020-2021: The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have extensive impacts on people across Canada and around the world. In order to comply with physical distancing guidelines, we have cancelled our annual Wake Up Call Breakfast and have refocused our efforts on a virtual campaign this year. We need your help now more than ever. Unfortunately, cancer doesn’t stop being a life-changing and life-threatening disease in the middle of a pandemic. Those with cancer are among the most vulnerable in our communities right now and are at greater risk of more serious outcomes from COVID-19.
