This past Saturday, over 4.5 thousand participants came out to support the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre’s OneWalk to Conquer Cancer in Toronto. Together, survivors and supporters walked 25K through Toronto’s downtown neighbourhoods.
An incredible $7.5 million was raised and designated to 15 different cancer funds. These funds will help scientists detect cancers earlier, diagnose cancer with more precision and target treatment for each patient, as well as provide support for patients and families through their cancer journey.
The title sponsor for the OneWalk to Conquer Cancer was Shoppers Drug Mart, and they rallied together over 700 participants for this year’s walk, and raised over $700,00.
