Jams and Jellies for a Good Cause

The Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope is the largest and most powerful event of its kind in the country. Held in over 35 communities nationwide, it is the only walk in Canada to direct all attention and fundraising towards helping women with ovarian cancer live fuller, better and longer lives.

Held annually during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in September, this family-friendly event raises vital funds to provide support, raise awareness and fund much-needed research into prevention, improved treatments and ultimately, a cure.

If you have not already registered, please visit the link below to join us on Sunday, September 8th at a city near you.
