Help Us Reach Our Goal So No One Has To Face Cancer Alone

This Fall I will be running in the Virtual Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Charity Challenge to support Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto. While COVID-19 continues to be a threat to us all, Gilda's Club has been forced to close it's iconic red doors. But for those with the diagnosis, facing cancer has never been more isolating. Gilda's Club has shifted to virtual social, emotional, nutritional and practical support programs for those experiencing cancer related stress. A compliment to medical treatments, psychosocial support is an essential component of a cancer care plan that has the potential to improve clinical outcomes! Please sponsor me today and you will help Gilda's Club improve the quality of life for men, women, children and teens who have been impacted by cancer and continue to be extremely isolated - no gift is too small, every gift makes a difference. Thank you for your support!

Description

This year's Scotiabank Run/Walk has gone virtual for 2020 so please support me as I run for Gilda's Club Greater Toronto who provides cancer support programs free of charge to adults, teens/children as well as their families who are experiencing cancer-related stress. Due to COVID-19, there has never been a more significant time to donate. This year’s event is crucial as Gilda's Club had to cancel all other fundraising events yet those living with cancer related stress need Gilda's Club now more than ever. This pandemic, the forced isolation and extraordinary uncertainties have had a tremendous impact on Gilda's Club members who are living with and experiencing cancer related stress. By donating you will make it possible for our members to access and receive the support they need to relieve stress, reduce isolation & provide resources to help them through this increasingly difficult time. Funds raised will maintain our cancer support groups/programs as our team of licensed health professionals have modified these programs to virtual platforms. Thanks for helping to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone.
