Stop by Women’s College Hospital Foundation’s booth in the Peter Gilgan Atrium on February 12 to register for Toronto’s 2019 SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women in support of the Women’s Mental Health Program, and receive a pair of special shoelaces.

With a 10K run, 5K run or walk and a 1K Little Steppers for the kids, the Run for Women is a fun and accessible way for friends and colleagues to get moving together for mental health.

Part of a national program supporting mental health programs in local communities across Canada, the annual walk/run raises vital funds for women’s mental health programs. For the past six years, the Toronto run has supported Women’s College Hospital’s (WCH) Women’s Mental Health Program. Last year’s event welcomed 1,500 community members and raised a record-breaking $225,000 to advance innovations in women’s mental health at WCH.

The 2019 Run for Women will take place on Saturday, June 8 and will begin and end in front of Women’s College Hospital.

Rally your department, colleagues and friends in support of a life-changing cause right here at WCH, and encourage one another to stay active. For a $10 discount on the registration fee, department team captains can contact Janet Patterfung at janet.patterfung@wchospital.ca or 416-323-6323 ext. 4709.

In addition to forming a team, WCH staff and community members can also register as individuals or join the WCH Foundation team (please contact Janet Patterfung for more details).
