Pharmaprix Weekend to End Women's Cancers

The organisation's core values and goals are to bring hope to women suffering from cancer or who have survived cancer. The Pharmaprix weekend is also to remember people who lost their battle to cancer. During the weekend, people will walk and funds will be raised for the Segal Cancer Center of the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal. This year, the organisation is celebrating his tenth year of fighting to end cancer. They are working hard every day to raise money for cancer researches, for prevention programs and for treatments at the Segal Cancer Center.

 

This foundation works all year long to find fundraiser but their major project is the Pharmaprix Weekend that will take place on August 23 and 24, 2014. You can volunteer for only a couple of hour or for an entire day. They need people to register the participants, to assemble the tents at the base camp, to cheer the walkers and much more. You can also raise funds and be a walker yourself for the weekend. To volunteer for this opportunity go to their website to register. If you want to know more before you volunteer you can also learn about personal walkers' experiences on the website and see pictures of the 2013 weekend. Moreover there is a page on which you can request more information on the weekend and on the organisation.

 

Also, on the organisation website, there is a page named "Your Dollars at Work" were you can find all the work that was possible to accomplish with the funds that were raised. For example, supporting nurse programs and recruiting specialist in the field of cancer from all over the world.
