Cameco Touchdown for Dreams

Cameco Touchdown for Dreams

 

Cameco Touchdown for Dreams is a three-year partnership between Cameco, the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency.

The program, announced May 25, 2012, aims to raise more than $250,000 during the next three years through an annual spring gala and by selling pink Rider merchandise at a Rider game in Regina.

Proceeds help grant the wishes of women living with cancer, and fund a mobile unit to travel through northern Saskatchewan to screen for cancer and promote healthy lifestyles.

To make a donation, please visit the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency website.



Applications for the 2014 Cameco Touchdown for Dreams Program are Now Being Accepted

A woman facing a life-threatening diagnosis of cancer can complete the application or she can be referred by a family member, friends, medical personnel or others.

Please apply at www.saskcancer.ca before April 1, 2014.

Cameco Touchdown for Dreams 2013 – In Memory of Shirley

Cameco staff and local community volunteers helped grant another wish in the Cameco Touchdown for Dreams program.

During the second week of October, 2013, Cameco employees were in Quill Lake, Saskatchewan putting on a barbecue in memory of Shirley Sametts, who lost her battle with cancer earlier this year. As part of the event, family members cut the ribbon on a new memorial gazebo in Shirley's honour, which was hand-built a few weeks earlier by Cameco volunteers and local residents.

It's all part of the Cameco Touchdown for Dreams program. Watch video



2013 Ambassador – Tracy Doell

The Saskatchewan Roughriders, Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (SCA) and Cameco announced the Cameco Touchdown for Dreams 2013 ambassador – and granted her wish on May 29th. Watch video

Tracy Doell – 42-years-old from Saskatoon with incurable stage four lung cancer – asked for a very unique dream to come true. Knowing she has been given a life expectancy of 8-19 months, she asked for a lease on a convertible Ford Mustang. Thanks to VWAG, that dream came true with a 24-month free lease.

As the 2013 ambassador for Cameco Touchdown for Dreams, Tracy delivered the keynote address at the May 29th fundraising gala. She will also be at Mosaic Stadium for the Saskatchewan Roughriders' pink game on October 19th where Cameco employees, Rider wives and SCA staff will sell pink Roughrider merchandise to game-day fans. Sale proceeds will be used to help make the dreams come true.
