Staff at Gemterra Developments Corporation joined the thousands of participants at this year’s Rexall OneWalk to Conquer Cancer last Saturday to raise funds for the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. The team raised over $15,000 in support of the foundation — one of the top five research facilities in the world — and walked 25 kilometres through the rain for a collective distance of 175 kilometres.
“The research centre means a great deal to our team, many of whom have been affected by Cancer, in one form or another,” said Yan Wang, President at Gemterra Developments Corporation. “Raising money for this cause and participating in this walk has been extremely rewarding, and we’re excited to make this a Gemterra tradition.”
The Rexall OneWalk allows participants to choose to fundraise individually or as a team for the cancer cause that matters most to them. This year’s event saw participants walk 25 kilometres through many of Toronto’s historic and cultural neighbourhood, finishing off at Nathan Phillips Square.
“We are extremely grateful to the community of walkers, sponsors, donors, crew and volunteers for their dedication and support,” said Paul Alofs, President and CEO of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. “We have been walking 14 years to conquer cancer, and our walkers have helped raise an amazing $162 million for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. This year, in the second annual OneWalk to conquer cancer, 3,555 walkers have raised $6.5 million.”
