World Cancer Day
Mars Discovery District - 101 College Street W (College Street Entrance)

Tuesday, February 4th is World Cancer Day, and every year on this day, people around the world come together to show support, raise awareness and take action. The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is proud to be part of the international movement through The Weekend to Conquer Cancer by working to complete a 220-kilometre WALK-A-THON CHALLENGE.

Join us on Tuesday, February 4th to walk, advocate and raise awareness for The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.



  1. Walkers can take part in-person and join us by walking on 1 of 2 treadmills for as little as 15min to an hour to help us accomplish over 220km as a group. Please email to reserve your preferred time spot.
  2. Walkers can visit our activation site to take photos and video to share with their team, family, friends and donors.
  3. If you cannot attend in person, you can show your support by recruiting more riders and/or fundraise $220 to show your support to the 220,000 Canadians that will be diagnosed cancer this year by tagging your event using the hashtags:#TheWeekendTO and specifically for World Cancer Day: #WCD #WorldCancerDay #UniteForTheFight and #ShowUsYourKMs
