The LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart™ Run for Women

You walked. You ran. You got a sweet Shoppers Drug Mart Swag Bag, too!

Last year, more than 750 St. Joe’s supporters took part in the Hamilton edition of the 2022 LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women. Together, YOU raised more than $120,000 fund women’s mental health and addictions care at our Hospital, and we’re so very grateful!

This year we are excited to announce we will be back at Confederation Park on June 17, 2023. So come out and enjoy a warm summer walk or run by the beach as we all 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.

Community support for this event couldn’t have come at a more important time for women’s mental health. From job loss to juggling work-life balance, coping with isolation to having to care for others, COVID-19 has 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.

Since first becoming the grateful beneficiary of the Run for Women in 2018, more than $450,000 has been raised through the event. A special thanks goes out to all the Run for Women teams and individual registrants, participants from local Shoppers Drug Mart stores, and our dedicated colleagues at St. Joe’s who take part in this event every year to continue providing the best possible care to our patients. If you have any questions, please contact tayler@stjoesfoundation.ca.
