More than 400 community leaders, doctors and researchers from around Ottawa are gathering Thursday for the annual Cancer Champion's Breakfast at the Ottawa Conference & Event Centre.
Money raised at the event will stay in Ottawa and will be used for life-saving clinical trials as well as the Cancer Coaching programs at the Maplesoft Centre.
This is the sixth annual breakfast hosted by the Cancer Foundation.
Since 2009, more than 1,300 people attending the event have raised more than $1.6-million.
Last year's breakfast raised more than $407,000.
