TIFF 2014: Stand Up To Cancer Canada Red Carpet


The launch of Stand Up To Cancer Canada took place at Andrew Richard Designs on September 5, 2014.

Award winning actor Ben Stiller, the who’s who of Canada’s entertainment industry, and officials from the Canadian cancer research community came together to celebrate the launch of an important global program in Canada, in support of fighting Cancer. The event was also the first-ever live telecast between the U.S. event and Canada.

The event began with red carpet festivities, where numerous talents, health industry professionals, and ambassadors took to the carpet to share their support of the program, and to share their personal connection to the problem. We chatted with a number of talents on the carpet, including Nikki Yanofsky and Lauren Holly, both of whom shared personal stories of loved ones who have been affected by Cancer.
