OneWalk to Conquer Cancer renews partnership with Rexall in advance of 2018 event


OneWalk to Conquer Cancer benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre has announced a renewed partnership with title sponsor Rexall in advance of the 2018 event. 

Rexall became the title sponsor of OneWalk in 2016 and in 2017, Team Rexall raised more than $95,000 for The Princess Margaret, one of the top five cancer research centres in the world. 

“We are grateful for this ongoing partnership between Rexall and The Princess Margaret, which will continue to draw thousands of like-minded individuals from across Canada to participate in OneWalk, Sept. 7 to 8,” Michael Burns, CEO and President of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, said in a prepared release. 

There are five route options for the 2018 event, including a new 15 km Night Walk through downtown Toronto Sept. 7. 

On Sept. 8 participants can choose from the 15 km Circuit, 25 km Classic or 40 km “Marathon.” Walkers can also choose the new Two-Day, Your Way option, completing both the Night Walk and any of the additional routes, for a combined journey of up to 55 km. 

Rexall pharmacist Irene Saffran is taking part in her second OneWalk this September and is walking in support of two of her colleagues who have been touched by cancer. 

“My practice at Rexall connects me with many cancer patients undergoing treatment at The Princess Margaret and I am committed to helping them through my work. OneWalk continues to be my personal way of helping my two dear colleagues and countless other Canadians,” Saffran said.

“With OneWalk, hope and optimism are at the forefront of every participant’s mindset. It’s empowering to have the opportunity to support world-leading doctors, scientists and researchers who make life better for those living with cancer. The fundraising and physical challenges that OneWalk provides are nothing compared to what patients experience and for that, I’ll keep on walking.”
