(September 29, 2009) – The Winners Walk of Hope took place on Sunday September 13, 2009 in 14 cities across Canada. Three-time Canadian Champion and 1988 Olympic silver medalist Elizabeth Manley who lost her mother to a battle with ovarian cancer last year was the national spokesperson for the 2009 Winners Walk of Hope and helped her team raise over $10,000! In total, $2.2 million was raised to support Ovarian Cancer Canada and help fund programs and research.
The Winners Walk of Hope supports Ovarian Cancer Canada and since 2002 the walk has raised over $4.5 million to fund ovarian cancer research. The Winners Walk of Hope is a chance for women and their families touched by ovarian cancer to come together to celebrate life, and to give hope and inspiration to one another.
Congratulations to all those that participated!
