Andrea THOMAS Hill ’86

One woman’s vision moves millions

Andrea THOMAS Hill ‘86 is driven by a strong sense of philanthropy and community service. In 1992, she founded Run for the Cure in Canada and, suddenly, families, friends and communities were running together for someone they loved.
The event grew to become a vital part of our country’s landscape and raised millions of dollars in breast cancer research funds.

I felt, and still feel, so lucky to have been a part of this great school, with its extraordinary history and incredible teachers. It just inspired me.
In 2007, Andrea’s inspiration drove her to support families affected by poverty. She founded Vancouver’s Cause We Care Foundation to help single mothers and their children find more fulfilling, empowered and independent lives, adding immeasurably to those touched by her deeply caring spirit.
