Russell Browne
Managing Director, BMO Capital Markets
Kernls Champion for Pancreatic Cancer 

“My brother and I were raised by our mother. She was our entire world. Her loss has been difficult to absorb, but it has propelled me into finding a way to combat this specific type of cancer which is one of the deadliest.”


Lupe Morales
Managing Director, Daughter
Kernls Champion for Alzheimer's Disease

"This was the first fundraising I had ever done, the Kernls team was awesome. Just educating myself more about the research has been extraordinary. My mother is 81 and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s two summers ago. I want to engage [with the research] and stay engaged, for my mom, for my grandmother - I’ve become an advocate on so many levels."

What’s a Champion?
Champions are our most motivated donors. They’ve had first-hand experience with an illness and are driven to make an impact by supporting related research directly.

Do Champions need to donate themselves or match donations?
No, there is no specific requirement to match donations or donate as a Champion. However, Champions who offer donation matches see more traction with their campaigns.

What benefits are available to Champions?
  • Champions and their stories are featured on the project page.
  • Champions have the opportunity to participate in special sessions with researchers, receive in-depth updates on the projects they support during and long after their campaign has ended.
  • Champions are also offered the opportunity to connect with other Champions who are supporting the same research area.
  • Champions will have early access to information about new projects relevant to them.
  • Champions have a huge impact in making this research possible and they are leaving a legacy of ensuring other patients in the future get more information, effective treatment and one day, a cure.

What are expectations of a Champion?
