About The Weekend


The Shoppers Drug Mart® Weekend to End Women’s Cancers™ Benefiting The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is a Weekend you’ll never forget. It’s a Weekend to remember those lives we have lost to breast or gynecologic cancer and a Weekend to celebrate the lives we are saving. This is a Weekend creating hope for every woman’s future. With over $133 million raised, The Weekend has made groundbreaking strides in the fight against women’s cancers and thousands of lives have been saved along the way.

This year, Opening Ceremonies, Closing Ceremonies, and Camp are all being held in the iconic Rogers Centre! We'll be walking a new route with more waterfront and exciting new neighborhoods, and camp on centre field at Rogers Centre. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we are so excited for you to be a part of it!

We walk in honour of those we’ve lost and the lives we’re saving each day. We’re recruiting old friends and making new ones in a joint effort to expand The Weekend Family and end women’s cancers once and for all. Some of us have been walking since The Weekend’s inaugural year in 2003, while others are just beginning their Weekend journey.

Whether you’re a Survivor yourself, walking for a loved one, or walking for all women, it doesn’t matter. Be a part of our celebration on September 7-8, 2013 and customize the best Weekend experience for you. Choose to enjoy the full 2-Day, 60km distance for maximum impact, or try the 1-Day, 32km distance. Do something bold in 2013, and walk in The Weekend!
