Current Events and Campaigns

In 2019, our national events raised over $1 million dollars toward our goals of supporting life-saving research and educational programs for the millions of Canadians affected by liver disease.

Our two signature events, LIVERight Gala and STROLL For LIVER, bring excitement and much-needed fundraising to support our mission of bringing liver research to life for all Canadians. Plan to be a part of these worthwhile events in Alberta in 2019.
