We understand the challenges each of us are facing in this COVID-19 environment but feel that it is important and necessary that we continue to do our part in the fight against cancer. This disease continues to afflict far too many and has devastating consequences which have affected us all.
Last year this event raised over $1,000,000 which went directly towards patient care and continued advanced research. We are looking to surpass that total here in 2020 by participating in a virtual event that has each participant committing to a 20km walk at a location of their choice. The event will be ongoing from August 1-20th, following safe physical distancing protocols. Since cancer has no boundaries and considering the event is now virtual, we encourage the participation and support of people from across North America.
I am walking in support of all those we have lost, all those currently fighting affected and all who will face this challenge in the future.
