Welcome to WICC BC
WICC BC was founded in 2002. The first BC Steering Committee was comprised of Terri Johnson of Gore Mutual Insurance Company, Patti Kernaghan of SJ Kernaghan Adjusters Ltd., Marti Messam of Metrix Professional Insurance Brokers Inc., Jennie Moushos of AXA Pacific Insurance Company (now Intact Insurance Company), Steve McDonald of On Side Restoration Services Ltd., Jean Ritchie of The Economical Insurance Group, Janice Wavrecan of Royal & SunAlliance Insurance Company, Lindsay Olson from IBC, and Lyn Bailey from the Canadian Cancer Society.
From its early beginnings in 2002, WICC BC has been able to engage individuals and volunteers from many insurance-based companies that the organization has been able to increase its fundraising ability from year to year. Although the organization was first launched to support breast cancer research, WICC subsequently expanded its mandate to include all forms of cancer.
Since its founding in 2002, the WICC BC Chapter has donated more than $1.4 million to the Canadian Cancer Society BC & Yukon Division. The current pledge involves raising $500,000 towards Camp Goodtimes and lodge program in B.C..
WICC BC holds three signature events each year; a Spring gala, a golf tournament, and the November luncheon featuring inspirational, thought-provoking and educational look at cancer and those touched by it.
