Choose Your Impact

One of the ways The Weekend to Conquer Cancer™ differs from other events is that we let you choose exactly where your fundraising dollars will go. When you register, you’ll choose from one of 16 dedicated cancer funds or Princess Margaret Cancer Centre’s Discovery Research Fund.

Funds you raise enable The Princess Margaret to deliver Future Care Now by accelerating cancer research, education and clinical care benefiting patients at The Princess Margaret, across Canada, and around the world.

I personally saw the help throughout the years as a survivor, and now my sister [is] going through it. Thankfully to this event, the advancements in the twenty some odd years have been incredible. I’ve seen it first-hand, and it is working, just look at the survival rates.
