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

Hoog's Hikers


Please Donate to help end cancer!

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 is a challenge, but we are back, ready to continue this battle to end women’s cancers once and for all. 

Hoog’s Hikers are walking for the 11th year this year. We have been personally touched by breast cancer. We are walking in memory of CATHY HOOGSTRATEN and SANDRA HEYS who both lost their battle with breast cancer. We also walk in honour and support of the so many others touching our lives who are or have battled cancer. This year we will proudly walk beside, in support and in honour of two friends who are survivors and have joined our team - MARGARET MCPHERSON and MELANIE RISTAU.  We are also very proud to be walking with our two new registrants, both turning 13 this year who are taking the bold Generations Challenge - ASHLEY HOOGSTRATEN AND JAIDEN RISTAU.  They are the next generation - stepping up to make a difference!!

Our commitment is based on our love for our fellow sisters, mothers, grandmothers, 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, so we do. We can raise funds for benefit Princess Margaret Cancer Centre - a leader in the fight against women's cancers, so we do. We can and choose to be a part of this event to take down women’s cancers!  We know what we are doing is making a difference. 

Our team has raised a grand total of $305,000 in the 10 years that we have participated in this amazing event. Thank you to everyone who have supported our journey. 

We will be hosting our second annual benefit dance "Conquer Cancer Concert" April 26, 2014 at the Paris Fairgrounds.  We would like to thank all who showed their support to us last year and are looking forward to another successful fundraising event.  If you would like tickets, or would like to sponsor our dance in any way, please message me at or a fellow team member who you may know. 

Thank you again for all you do to support Hoog's Hikers!
