and our plans for the future!
Coda is a cancer fundraising initiative that started out as a student club at Marianopolis College in 2019.
With the goal of raising funds and awareness for the cause, we organized a variety of events, such as bake sales, bagging sessions at local grocery stores, awareness events, and more.
Nearly $2,000 was raised within our first year of operation!
In late 2021, Coda was relaunched as a non-profit organization in official collaboration with the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), together with a complete brand refresh and a medical-student-led administration.
Following the relaunch, we managed to raise $40,000 in just over a year!
Today, Coda has branches in 12 different academic institutions, each one organizing its own events. In total, we are now working with over 100 dedicated student members, none of which receive any form of monetary compensation for their work.
We may have a new look and a larger team, but we still have the same goal in mind: create a world where no Canadian fears cancer.
We put together the Outreach Plan to reach out to other members of our demographic and gradually establish a network of young leaders across Canada willing to contribute to the fight against cancer.
To do so, we work alongside students in other academic institutions to encourage them to take advantage of their innovative skills and start a Coda seed of their own.
With tens of ambitious and hardworking McGill medical students on our team, we hope to leave a lasting positive impact on the lives of Canadian cancer patients.
