For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

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

Gilda's Club is a special place. Very welcoming. Not just support groups but cooking classes, exercise classes, art programs, activities for kids, for teens. Computer drop in, Comedy nights (naturally since it's named after Canadian comedian Gildna Radner.

I've had cancer twice. I have a busy life so I don't get to Gilda's Club often but it's comforting to know it's there when I or others need it . There are no fees for any program. Donations and events like the Scotiabank Marathon make that possible.

Last year I walked a marathon over three days. I'm walking a marathon again.

Please sponsor me so Gilda's can continue its work.


Please support me as I participate in the Scotiabank Waterfront 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 those impacted by cancer need Gilda's Club now more than ever. Registrations for programs have increased by 59% since the onset of COVID-19. 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 cancer patients and their families 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 the cancer support groups/programs as their 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.
