Our Events

Fighting back, step by step. Our events are centered around fundraising, awareness, and the UBC Community!

Cook and Connect:

Healthy Cooking Competition 

An online event aiming to inspire others to eat and cook healthy while entering a chance to win cool prizes! This event will put your vlogging and cooking skills to the ultimate test as you go head to head with another team of amateur chefs.

Did we mention there are $10 gift cards just for participating?! 


Cuts for Cancer

UBC’s Cuts for Cancer is an annual event in which students and the UBC community are given the unique opportunity to help those in the fight against cancer. Hair donations of 10″ or longer will be transformed into wigs for children who suffer from long-term medical hair loss, with monetary donations supporting the Wigs 4 Kids program at BC Children’s Hospital.

Seize Seeds The Day!

At the end of the event you get to keep your little plant too!
