We are an AMS club operating out of the University of British Columbia Vancouver campus. Made up by passionate, student volunteers in the fight against cancer.
Our Goals and Purpose:
- Promote awareness about cancer and cancer related issues
- Offer support to the UBC community and to those who have been affected by cancer and related issues
- Organize events for recognized national and local charities
- Provide information about cancer and cancer related issues
Itching to join us in the fight against cancer? We provide volunteer opportunities! We are open to all, and as a student-run organization, if you’re a student, don’t hesitate to contact us and join!
We have been an AMS club since 2006.
Meet the Team
No matter what it is, these two have got your back. They bring the vision, initiative, and completion to UBC Cancer Association. Feel like talking? Have an idea, a concern, or are just curious about the club? These two are the ones to talk to!
The finance portfolio is responsible for overseeing all club finances and executing academic events such as Bio 112 exam packs to raise funds for the club.
Have you seen our posters? Our Facebook event? Our website? These guys are the go-to when an event or initiative needs some publicity.
Relay for Life Committee
Work closely with the Canadian Cancer Society to plan and implement the annual Relay for Life event on campus.
Working on both awareness and outreach, this committee currently creates our educational materials.
The front-facing individuals of UBC Cancer Association, both Christina and Eashan work towards getting sponsorship and coordination with outside groups on campus.
Internal Affairs Committee
Members of the Internal Affairs Committee hold socials, coordinate boothing, make sure everyone is happy, and bring the fun to the association.
