Shoot for the Cure is a fundraising initiative led by University Sport’s Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) to raise money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, and other related charities. The campaign has proven an overwhelming success since it was launched in the fall of 2007, having collected over $1 million in donations.
