What is the Weekend to End Breast Cancer?

The Weekend to End Breast Cancer is a two-day, 60 Kilometer walk through the neighborhoods of Toronto, taking place September 10-12, 2004.  Proceeds benefit Princess Margaret Hospital, funding important breast cancer research, education, services and care.


Read more about Princess Margaret Hospital and the research programs that the money helps to fund.


Why are we walking?
There are millions of stories about women we've lost.  About mothers, grandmothers, wives, sisters and friends.  And there are just as many stories about the families they've left behind.
My story is about my Aunt Marilyn.  I always thought she was the coolest aunt.  She was a young, single woman with a great career.  One of my favorite childhood memories is of a day in July, 1980.  My mom was in the hospital having my little sister.  Aunt Marilyn came to take me and my brother out for the day.
We went to the usual places: swimming, the park.  And of course we had ice cream.  What I remember the most was her generosity.  That's what really made the day so special.  She was generous with her time, her attention and her love.  All the other adults were busy with the baby and the hospital.  She took the time to make a couple of little kids feel important and special.

I am walking in her memory.  I've named a star after her.  Do you know someone who should be represented at the Weekend to End Breast Cancer?  Find out how you can name a star for them.

How you can help?
We have volunteered to walk 60 kilometers to raise money to help find a cure for breast cancer.  We've been training and getting in shape for the event.  But we can't do it without you.  We have agreed to raise $2000 each to help end breast cancer and we need your support.  Please visit our personal pages at the official Weekend to End Breast Cancer site.  Take a few minutes and sponsor one of us. 

Please don't hesitate.  Even if you can only send a few dollars, it will add up.  Our team needs $4000 to be allowed to join the walk.
If 4000 people each send $1.00
Or if 2000 people send $2.00
Or if 800 people send $5.00
... your donation can make a difference!
If you can afford it, please consider sponsoring us for a dollar or two for each kilometer.  Keep in mind how far we are walking! 
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
