INFO – The Shoppers Drug Mart® Weekend to End Women’s Cancers™ benefiting The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret Hospital is a Weekend you’ll never forget. It’s a Weekend to remember those lives we have lost to breast or gynecologic cancer and a Weekend to celebrate the lives we are saving. This is a Weekend creating hope for every woman’s future.
This year, we are kicking off Ten Years Strong in the effort to end women’s cancers, by asking: Are you a 10? A 10 is anyone who is walking with us in the 2012 Weekend to celebrate 10 years strong. Join us to commemorate the monumental decade of difference we’ve made for all women.
With over $120 million raised, The Weekend has made groundbreaking strides in the fight against women’s cancers and thousands of lives have been saved along the way. So this year, we are rewarding the commitment of our longtime participants and the efforts of those who go above and beyond to fund raise for the cause with the creation of our brand new 2012 Diamond Club.
We walk in honour of those we’ve lost and the lives we’re saving each day. We’re recruiting old friends and making new ones in a joint effort to expand The Weekend Family and end women’s cancers once and for all. Some of us have been walking since The Weekend’s inaugural year in 2003, while others are just beginning their Weekend journey.
Whether you’re a Survivor yourself or walking for a loved one or walking for all women, it doesn’t matter. Now is as good a time as ever to discover your inner 10! So be a part of our celebration on September 8-9, 2012 and customize the best Weekend experience for you. Choose to enjoy the full 2-Day, 60km distance for maximum impact, or try the 1-Day 32km distance. Walk with us in 2012. BE A 10! endcancer.ca
