The Polka Dot Trot is the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation’s signature event designed to support and uniquely connect those affected by all forms of cancer. With The Polka Dot Trot, you can fundraise as a teamor individually, and choose to walk in the colour of the cancer that matters to you.
Newfoundland and Labrador has the highest incidence rate of cancer in Canada. With 1 in 3 people in our province being diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime – the incidence rate of cancer will increase to 58% in the next 15 years.
This event is focused on cancer patients, survivors, families, friends, cancer care professionals of all ages and abilities. Together, we will walk to improve cancer care in our province.
