CALGARY, AB (March 12, 2024) – The Alberta Cancer Foundation, along with Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the University of Calgary (UCalgary), are thrilled to announce that ARC Resources Ltd. (ARC) has generously donated $5 million to the OWN.CANCER campaign. This donation is the largest corporate gift made to the campaign and will support clinical trials and innovations in radiation oncology at the Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre opening later this year.

“I would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to ARC Resources for their transformative donation to cancer care in Alberta,” says Wendy Beauchesne, CEO, Alberta Cancer Foundation. “Their generous and ongoing support will not only drive groundbreaking research but also directly impact the lives of Albertans facing cancer, offering hope, comfort, and improved outcomes right here in Calgary.”

ARC has not only donated $5 million to OWN.CANCER but has also pledged significant support as a key corporate sponsor for the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s Enbridge Tour Alberta for Cancer, Alberta’s largest cycling event aimed at making life better for cancer patients across the province. With this latest commitment, ARC’s total contributions to the Alberta Cancer Foundation soar to over $6.5 million, making a tremendous difference for countless cancer patients here in Alberta and setting an incredible example of the power of community investment.

“Cancer is a diagnosis that requires an extensive network of support to conquer, and it’s a cause that hits close to home for ARC and our employees,” said Terry Anderson, ARC’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The Arthur Child will open the doors for patients to receive world-class care and we look forward to seeing the positive impact this will have for so many Albertans.”

ARC’s donation is helping the OWN.CANCER campaign move one step closer to meeting it’s $250 million fundraising goal to support world-class cancer research and care to the Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Calgary.

“At ARC, we embrace innovation in all facets of our business. This donation will support grassroots innovation in cancer detection, treatment and care through leading research, world-class diagnostic equipment, and the latest clinic trials,” said Anderson.

The Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre will be the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Canada and a world-leading healthcare facility for research and education in oncology, delivering fully integrated cancer care under one roof. Its design, made up of two curving, L-shaped forms coming together in an embrace, will provide patients, families and staff with a warm, comforting environment that invokes hope and healing.
