Virtual Date - October 4th, 2020

Welcome to the annual Journey to Conquer Cancer Run or Walk, honouring family, friends, and loved ones who are part of the cancer journey – every step of the way!

THIS YEAR, THE JOURNEY IS A VIRTUAL EVENT, WHERE EVERYONE EVERYWHERE IS WELCOME!  You can now safely run or walk your 5K, 3K or 1k distance anywhere… all while continuing to raise critical funds for cancer research!  Although we can’t physically be together, by sharing your experience through our online community, together we can make a difference!

The Journey to Conquer Cancer is a special event for a number of reasons.  Your fundraising dollars go directly towards YOUR CANCER AREA OF CHOICE by supporting any area of cancer research, clinic, lab or patient care program at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.  With the event now taking place virtually, we allow everyone to BE A PART OF THE JOURNEY.

Celebrate on event day with a Live Virtual Opening and Closing Ceremony on Oct. 4th, complete with a Warm Up, Entertainment and unique Social Tools so you can share your experience with your social networks and those you care about!

The Journey is now completely Virtual.  As a result, registration is now entirely FREE*! This includes:

- Registration as an Individual

- Registration as a Team Captain

- Registration as a Team Member
