After 14 years as President & CEO of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, Paul Alofs is stepping down. He joined the Foundation in 2003 with a passion for the cause after losing his mother to the disease in November 2002.

During his time at the Foundation, Alofs led the successful five-year Billion Dollar Challenge, raising more than $1.2 Billion to support Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and creating a number of new fundraising programs, such as The Ride to Conquer Cancer.

"He opened doors that nobody (knew) even existed," said Dr. Lillian Siu, BMO Financial Group Chair in Precision Genomics at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, in a special tribute video.

"He's allowed the Cancer Centre to become really one of the top five cancer centres in the world," echoed Dr. Bradly Wouters, Executive VP, Science and Research, University Health Network.
