The Run For Women

Run for Women returns to Hamilton this spring!

On Saturday, May 14, 2022, (date to be confirmed) the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart™ Run for Women will be returning to Hamilton for its 5th annual event. As we all strive to overcome the long-lasting lockdowns and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, your participation and support of this event has never been more important. This spring, let’s walk, run and raise funds to support women’s mental health programs and services at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton.

The 2022 event will provide opportunities to participate in-person and virtually as we continue to navigate the latest public health guidelines and ensure that the event is responsive to everyone’s personal comfort levels. The event will include a 5K Run/Walk, 10K Run and a ‘Little Steps’ 1K event for children under 12.

If supporting the mental health of women in your community isn’t reason enough to take part, don’t forget about the legendary Swag Bag that is yours for free when you register and is jam-packed with samples of the very latest health, wellness and beauty products from Shoppers Drug Mart.

Registration is now open! Sign up today by visiting runforwomen.ca.

A BIG THANK YOU!

Participation in last year’s virtual event was incredible, with 837 individual registrants and 83 fundraising teams taking part in the Run for Women. Together we raised more than $120,000—an all-time high. Those funds are ensuring that women of all ages in our community can access the mental health care and support they may need. St. Joe’s is proud to return as the charity beneficiary of the 2022 event. Thank you to Shoppers Drug Mart and the LOVE YOU program for championing this amazing event, and thanks to YOU, our generous community of supporters.
