The 2014 Toronto Shoppers Drug Mart Weekend to End Women's Cancers benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre

Desperate for a Cure Housewives

Donate to our journey and make this Weekend matter!

The Desperate for a Cure Housewives have been walking since 2004 as a team.

We came together in a casual meeting and have become life-long friends.  Each year new friends join the team to walk and experience the life changing experience of walking 60 km in an effort to end the fight to find a cure.  Our circle of Desperate for a Cure Housewives share the experience of walking, fundraising, cheering each other on and supporting our community.

Our commitment is based on our love for our fellow sisters, mothers, grandmas, daughters, nieces, and friends everywhere. It’s based on the realization that we each need to do our part in this fight. We can walk. We can raise funds to benefit Princess Margaret Cancer Centre– a leader in the fight against all women's cancers. We can and choose to be a part of this movement to take down women’s cancers!

We ask you to take a stance with us and join this life-saving adventure for all women. Be a part of our very personal journey - by giving, by walking with us, or simply by sharing our story with your circle of influence. Don’t stand back and think about what you could have done – take that first step today! Take a chance with us – we’re going to change thousands of lives, beginning with our own.

The Shoppers Drug Mart® Weekend to End Women's Cancers™ is a 2-day, 60-kilometre or 1-day 32-kilometre walk through the neighbourhoods of Toronto. It’s going to be a challenge, but we’re ready to do something bold and powerful in an effort to end women’s cancers once and for all.

This is OUR journey. Make it a Weekend we’ll never forget.
