#OneWalkTO to Conquer Cancer which benefits the Princess Margaret Cancer Center.
One breakthrough is everyone’s breakthrough.
One person’s fight is the battle we all take on.
September 12th, 2015: Rally together with your friends, family and community to help raise critical funds for Princess Margaret Cancer Center, one of the top 5 cancer research centers in the world. It’s your opportunity to be part of game-changing movement. Could you imagine if we all came together the impact we could make in the fight to Conquer ALL Cancers?
WALKING TO CONQUER ALL CANCERS
Save the date: September 12th, 2015 is the day thousands of people just like you, will walk united through the streets of Toronto with one objective: To change the future for all those affected by this devastating disease. For over a decade, men and women just like you, have laced up their shoes and taken great strides against women’s cancers. Men and women who are passionately united in the proof that the work of leading Princess Margaret researchers and clinicians is increasing survivorship and supporting patients together, have raised over $145 million dollars.
We need to continue the fight to walk to conquer all types of cancers so that no one is left out or feeling that their cancer is any less important. So this year, we have launched The Shoppers Drug Mart® #OneWalk to Conquer Cancer. It’s onewalk, on one day, for all cancers.
Each and every day, over 500 Canadians will hear the heartbreaking words no one ever wants to hear: “I’m Sorry, you have cancer”
Loved ones will join together to prepare for the fight of their lives.
Cancer does not discriminate: Men, Women, young, old, rich, poor, and no one is immune to cancers wrath.
Cancer is a thief that steals the precious time we have with those we love.
