About UWO CAS

The University of Western Ontario Cancer Awareness Society is a non-profit student organization established in September of 2006. Our mission is to raise cancer awareness with the Western student population, through cancer prevention, education, and promotion of healthy lifestyles.

The University of Western Ontario Cancer Awareness Society started six years ago and we have gotten a lot of help from the university community and other supporters across the city. We offer various volunteer opportunities for Western students, which are mainly directed towards fundraising and awareness events – many of which take place on the university campus.

Although this club is relatively young, we have had tremendous success in promoting awareness fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society, as well as local hospitals and cancer research programs. However, none of this could have been accomplished without your generous help and involvement within our club. We welcome anyone who’s interested in becoming a member and feel free to contact us. We will be very happy to answer any of your questions and concerns.
