What is The Weekend to End Breast Cancer?
The Weekend to End Breast Cancer™ benefiting the Jewish General Hospital is simply this - an awesome life changing adventure. During one amazing weekend, August 25-27th, 2006, thousands of women and men will unite in Montreal to walk 60 kilometres in a bold display of courage and commitment. It’s a weekend of hope, as we honour lives lost, celebrate survivors, and help bring breast cancer care to those who so desperately need it. This extraordinary weekend is about finding the hero in yourself and discovering strength you never knew you had. The money you help raise will benefit the The Jewish General Hospital Foundation, a leader in the fight against breast cancer and a McGill University teaching hospital. One in every nine Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Maybe someone in your life has been affected. It could be your mother, sister, wife, daughter, son, or a friend. The Weekend to End Breast Cancer is your chance to go the distance in the fight against this disease; it’s your chance to be a hero for someone you love or someone you may never even meet.
The Weekend to End Breast Cancer is a journey you will never forget.
100% of every donation goes directly to the Jewish General Hospital, an international leader in the fight against cancer. From there the Jewish General Hospital invests in their breast cancer research, prevention, and treatment programs and pays for the costs of the event. The hospital is committed to breast cancer research at the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital, moving us a step closer to the end of the disease.
