Run for Women

Saturday, June 17, 2023

We are excited to return to Confederation Park on Saturday, June 17, 2023 for the Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women! Join us for a walk/run along the beach as we raise funds to ensure the women in our lives have access to the very best mental health and addictions care, right here at St. Joe’s.

From suffering higher incidence of job loss to juggling work-life balance, coping with isolation to having to care for others, the past few years have taken a disproportionate emotional toll on women across Canada, prompting an increase in demand for specialized care at St. Joe’s – the leading provider of mental health and addictions care in our region.

On June 17, join us as we walk, run and roll in support of women’s mental health and addictions care at our Hospital. There are a variety of distances to choose from, sign up for a 5k walk/run, a 10k run, or bring the family and take part in the 1k Little Steps event. If supporting the mental health of women in your community isn’t reason enough to take part, everyone who registers will receive a technical running t-shirt, a bracelet and the LEGENDARY swag bag bursting with health and beauty products courtesy of our friends at Shoppers Drug Mart®.
