This summer it seems my prayers have been filled with far too many names of friends and family members battling cancer. Young mothers and elderly grandparents, fathers in the prime of life - so many wonderful people with so many terrible struggles to face. Cancer touches us all, and it is a rare person who does not have a personal connection to the disease.
Did you know that everyday, more than 500 Canadians are diagnosed with a form of cancer? That's an astounding number. This year, on September 12th, 2015, warriors will walk 25 kms through the streets of Toronto, united in the purpose of raising funds for the fight against ALL cancers.
The One Walk to Conquer Cancer acknowledges that in cancer research, one breakthrough is everyone’s breakthrough. One person’s fight is the battle we all take on. So why not walk together? When walkers register for the event, they can select the cancer fund that matters most to them, to receive their support:
- Breast Cancer
- Gynecologic Cancers - Uterine, Cervical, Ovarian, Vulvar Cancer
- Colon, Rectal and Gastrointestinal, Prostate,
- Testicular, Bladder and Genitourinary Cancer
- Head and Neck, Brain, Central Nervous System,
- Eye, Skin and Melanoma, Endocrine Cancer
- Lymphoma, Kidney Cancer
- Leukemia, Childhood Cancer
- Lung Cancer, Sarcoma
You can connect with the walk on social:
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube
And we would love for you to join our Twitter Party August 26, 2015, at 8pm EDT, to show your support!
