Despite the torrential downpour of liquid sunshine, the 2012 Shoppers Drug Mart Weekend to End Women's Cancers was a success. A total of 4,590 participants raised $10 million for the Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, to support breakthrough research, clinical care and survivorship programs. This makes for a total of $133 million raised over the 10 years over the walk.
Exciting news for 2013, is that the Rogers Centre, home of the Toronto Blue Jays, will be the host venue for the 11th annual Weekend event, set for September 7 and 8, 2013. PMH will hold the opening ceremonies, overnight camp and closing ceremonies at the Rogers Centre on the playing field, under the retractable dome, with plans for a new 60 km route through downtown Toronto, along the Lake Ontario waterfront and through several neighbourhoods to be released next year.
"For 10 years now, I have walked in the Weekend and each year the experience gets bigger and better," said Gina Pace from Toronto, who underwent breast cancer treatment at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. "For me, the Weekend is personal because I have overcome breast cancer twice. And now, to have such a massive and iconic venue like the Rogers Centre for next year speaks to just how large it has become. I'm so excited and will be registering for 2013."
A total of 133 UHN staff members and PMHF board members participated as walkers, together raising over $306,920; hundreds more staff volunteered as crew or cheer squad members to make it a huge success.
