The odds are pretty good that you know a woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer or gynecological cancers. Here’s your opportunity to support those women. The Shoppers Drug Mart Weekend To End Women’s Cancers is set to take place September 10-11, 2011 beginning and ending at Downsview Park, Toronto. The walk, which can be done as a one-day 32 km walk or a two-day 60 km walk throughout Toronto streets, raises funds for breast or gynecological cancers. Participants must raise minimum pledges of $1,250 to participate in the one-day walk and $2,000 to walk for the two days. Walkers will enjoy a hot, catered dinner after the walk on Saturday evening, as well as a massage and entertainment including a runway show and dancing (if muscles permit). For those walking both Saturday and Sunday, a camp is available with hot showers and two-person tents, which need to be reserved in advance. Those interested in walking can register online or call 416-815-9255 for more information.
The Shoppers Drug Mart Weekend To End Breast Cancer has raised over $100 million since 2003 benefiting Princess Margaret Hospital. Proceeds have gone towards cancer research and care, research treatment and prevention.
