WEBC-lrg_imageThe seventh annual Weekend To End Breast Cancer was historic in more ways than one. With 4,616 participants raising $11.6 million in 2009, the Toronto event has passed the $100 million-mark in funds raised through its lifetime. But it is also the last Weekend To End Breast Cancer, as beginning in 2010, the big, bold event will be re-branded The Weekend To End Women's Cancers. Like this year, funds raised can be targeted towards breast cancer or gynecological cancers.
 
WEBC-lrg-2_imageThe 2009 event took walkers on Saturday (September 12) from The Princes' Gates at the Canadian National Exhibition, through Toronto's diverse and beautiful neighbourhoods to Downs-view Park. After a great dinner and an entertaining evening hosted by comedian Caroline Rhea, walkers retreated to their tents, resting up for day two. On Sunday, the route took a different, yet no less spectacular path, from Downsview back to the CNE.
  
Aches and blisters were the order of the days, but when all was said and done, participants had contributed significantly to the extraordinary work being done at The Princess Margaret.
