About The Weekend


It's a brand new Weekend! The Shoppers Drug Mart® Weekend to End Women's Cancers™ benefiting the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is an evolution of our historic journey for all women. During one amazing weekend, June 4-5, 2011, thousands will join together to walk the epic 2-Day or amazing new 1-Day distance, united in the battle against all women’s cancers. All Walkers will be fully supported with regular Pit Stops, hydration, food and medical care--should it be needed. It’s a massive undertaking, and that’s why participation is more critical than ever. The Weekend was built upon the courageous efforts by everyday people, transforming a small grassroots effort into one of Canada’s biggest difference-making endeavours for all women. Weekend funds support the critical work of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and their efforts to end breast and gynecologic cancers, diseases that one in seven Canadian women will be diagnosed within her lifetime. Together we can help impact the lives of thousands throughout Ottawa and across Canada; each step that we take leads us closer to a cure for both breast and gynecologic cancers. One Weekend truly can make a lifetime of difference.
