Team Robotics

Supporting cancer care in Atlantic Canada. Learn More.

Face the fight against cancer with us.

We have all been touched by cancer. That’s why our team is saddling up and facing the fight against cancer in this year’s BMO Ride for Cancer. It’s not about the how, it’s about the why – and this year’s BMO Ride community is all in! Together, we will help fund a world’s first cancer-fighting technology: personalized radiotherapy at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.

The goal? Fewer radiation treatments, better cancer outcomes, reduced side effects, more time at home with family, and reduced financial burden on patients and the healthcare system are all benefits we will help make possible.

Pioneered and invented right here in Nova Scotia at the QEII, this technology has the potential to transform the radiation treatment journeys for Atlantic Canadians facing a cancer diagnosis.

World-leading innovation and inventions are exciting. But the real impact is on QEII patients, who will be the first in the world to access one of the most precise and targeted treatment options available; game-changing care that isn’t offered anywhere else in Canada.

By supporting our ride, you are joining a community of fellow champions, who are funding the fight against cancer today and for future generations. Will you step up and support our team today?

Thank you to our supporters
