January renewal: commit to your fitness goals and support The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation

03/01/2018  |  Personal |  Posted by: Karen Adams

January is a time for renewal – renew your commitment to your fitness goals, and provide amazing support to The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation by training to WALK with us to conquer cancer!   There are no expensive fees, no heavy training costs or special equipment required.  Just a good pair of shoes is all you need to get started to train, and the willingness to register, fundraise and set your goal to walk with us on Sept. 7 and 8, 2018!  

The Rexall™ OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ is one of Canada’s life-changing cancer fundraising experiences.  Every year, thousands of Walkers unite, take to the streets of Toronto and challenge themselves to walk and raise vital funds benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world.

Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer but thanks to the funds raised through the Rexall™ OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre can continue to deliver world leading clinical enhancements and cancer research to conquer cancer in our lifetime.  

Our 2018 event has some ambitious new route options: OneWalk will kick off the evening of Friday, Sept. 7, 2018 with an all-new 15km Night Walk!   Choose the distance you want to walk and conquer your personal goal - you can even sign up to join us on Friday night, and then continue Saturday Sept. 8, by completing an additional 15, 25 or a marathon worthy 40km! 

When you register, you’ll also be able to make a personal impact by choosing to direct your fundraising dollars to one of 17 unique cancer funds including Princess Margaret Cancer Centre’s Discovery Research Fund. You choose to support the cancer fund that matters most to you. 

The funds you raise support Personalized Cancer Medicine at The Princess Margaret, enabling world-leading clinicians and researchers to detect cancers earlier, diagnose with more precision, target treatment for each patient and support patients and their families throughout the cancer journey.

I invite you to register, get started training today and help us conquer cancer in our lifetime!  

Walk On!
