About The Weekend
One Life-Changing Day.
Saturday, September 12, 2020

This year, The Weekend to Conquer Cancer™ will be an unforgettable virtual event, benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre - one of the top five cancer research centres in the world. Join a powerful community, thousands of walkers strong, as we come together virtually to Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime.

No registration fee, no fundraising minimum, we offer anyone of any age, in any location to join us and make a difference. Walk individually or as a team; we all have a reason to walk. Choose how you’ll make your impact and join us for a memorable day to help conquer cancer.

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.
