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

Team Elpida

TEAM ELPIDA - The Team of HOPE!!

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.

Team Elpida was formed in 2010 with 4 members. Our team has grown to 6 and over the last three years we have raised nearly $30,000 with the generous support of our friends and family. We are committed to walking again this year and blowing last year's numbers out of the water!

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!

Join our journey of love, hope, inspiration and dedication.  Over the last two years we have walked through record breaking rainfall - but the cold, wet weather, drenched feet, soaked bodies was nothing compared to  the agony of chemotherapy and radiation that thousands of women endure each day.

Help us help Princess Maragaret Hospital find a cure for women's cancers.

We believe a cure will be found in our lifetimes. We have HOPE!

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


With our deepest gratitude,
