Raising funds for breast cancer research, care & education

To take part in the Weekend to End Women's Cancers, we must raise a minimum of $2,000 each. But we would like to raise much, much more.

In 2007, we made it our goal to raise $100,000 for breast cancer research, care and education. We also made it our goal to help find a cure for colorectal cancer.

To date by participating the Weekend to End Women's Cancers (2006-2010) and the Ride to Conquer Cancer (2009 & 2010) we have raised approximately $82,235 helping to create awareness and find a cure for women's cancers and colorectal cancer.

Help us achieve our fundraising goal and the ultimate goal of finding a cure for breast cancer and ALL cancers by making a donation today.

Go directly to our team page where you can donate to either Karen or Joseph online or print out a donation form to mail off with your donation cheque. You can also donate in person at one of our fundraising events.

1 in 9 women will be diagnosed with
breast cancer
in their lifetime

You will know at least one person affected by breast cancer. You may already know someone diagnosed with breast cancer. Or you may be fighting breast cancer yourself.

Help us to reduce this statistic and cure all women's cancers by making a donation to The Weekend to End Women's Cancers. Visit us at one of our fundraising "tag days", donate online or send a cheque made payable to one of the walks we're participating in.

The Weekend to End Breast Cancer
changed its name

Photobucket

In 2009, The Weekend to End Breast Cancer changed its name to The Weekend to End Women's Cancers and in 2010 it became the Shoppers Drugmart Weekend to End Women's Cancers. The event and the research centres it supports want to recognize the link between breast cancer and all gynaecological cancers as well as extend the money raised to fund research into ALL WOMEN'S CANCERS, including breast, ovarian, cervical and other gynaecological cancers.

With thousands of participants in six cities across Canada, The Weekend to End Breast Cancer has raised millions of dollars for breast cancer research, care and education at leading cancer research centres throughout Canada. It has also created a huge amount of awareness about this awful disease.

Now, The Weekend to End Women's Cancers aims to create awareness for ALL women's cancers and raise much needed funds to find a cure, not only for breast cancer, but ALL cancers. For more information about the events or to register as a participant, visit www.endcancer.ca.
