{ the Bride + Groom }

Emily and Chris have been a couple near and dear to our WeddingGirl.ca family for some time now. Together, we are planning a beautiful June wedding in a historic mansion along the shore of Lake Ontario. Together, we have overcome numerous trials and tribulations that come with planning a wedding, and we’ve experienced immeasurable amounts of warmth, laughter, and friendship with one another.

{ the Cause }

Unfortunately, over the Holiday season, Emily and Chris learned that Emily’s aunt has cancer. In light of this, they have decided to participate in the Toronto Weekend To End Women’s Cancers. Not only are they raising money on behalf of Emily’s aunt, Chris’ family has a long history of breast cancer and they are raising money and awareness for each of these individuals that mean most to them.

{ the Message from Emily }

This is our first year walking, I have always said that one day I would love to walk but this was the year. Chris and I will be walking for my Aunt Martha, who is a strong, kind, loving mother, sister, aunt and friend. We wanted to be able to give her something that could lift her spirits, and giving her asomething just wasn?t going to be enough, so this is it, THIS IS FOR HER!!

The Shoppers Drug Mart® Weekend to End Women’s Cancers™ benefiting Princess Margaret Hospital is a Weekend you’ll never forget. It’s a Weekend to remember those lives we have lost to breast or gynecologic cancer and a Weekend to celebrate the lives we are saving. This is a Weekend creating hope for every woman’s future.

Since 2003, over $102 million has been raised by Weekend participants enabling numerous advances in cancer research and care. Proceeds continue to fund innovative research, treatment, and prevention programs for breast and gynecologic cancers at Princess Margaret Hospital.

All of this is made possible because of people just like you! Be a part of our celebration on September 10-11, 2011 and customize the best Weekend experience for you. Choose to enjoy the full 2-Day, 60km distance for maximum impact, or try the 1-Day 32km distance. You can also designate your fundraising dollars to go specifically to breast cancer or gynecologic cancers. Whichever experience you choose, make YOUR Weekend matter!
