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

I am participating this year’s Virtual Scotiabank Run and Charity Challenge for Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto, a cancer support organization. Gilda's support has helped me through two cancer diagnoses. I am walking a marathon because I know we older adults are resilient and I will prove it.

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.
