Core & Coffee 2020 @ The Rocket Room
Mar 8 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Core & Coffee 2020 @ The Rocket Room

The 3rd edition of Core and Coffee – a celebration of women’s health and fundraiser for Fertile Future will be held on International Women’s Day, Sunday, March 8th, 2020 at Rocket Bakery and Fresh Foods. 

Each year, approximately 10,000 young Canadians are diagnosed with cancer. Without knowing the importance of fertility preservation prior to treatment, many are left with few options for family planning. Fertile Future is a national charity that aspires to change this reality. Its mission is to inform, educate, and support cancer patients who are facing fertility-risking medical treatment, and oncology professionals who are providing this care. Since 2014, together, we have fundraised over $17,000 for Fertile Future, meaning 17 young men and women being treated for cancer have benefitted from our efforts. Our goal for 2020 is to surpass the $20,000 mark by fundraising $3,000 or more at this year’s event. 

To ensure Fertile Future can continue its important work, on March 8th, 2020, Katie Wadden and Amanda Hancock are hosting the 3rd edition of Core and Coffee – a celebration of women’s health in the heart of downtown St. John’s from 9-11AM. The event features a fitness class with EmpowHER coach, Sandy Bennett, followed by Rocket refreshments and presentations from healthcare providers, researchers, and patients involved in the fertility journey. Building upon the success of our previous events, we are pleased to offer an inclusive, safe space for people to connect on these important issues in a relaxed, health-promoting environment. There is an accessible entrance from Water Street. Please inquire for details. 

There is a minimum donation amount of $25 to participate in this event!
