Thank you to the 5,006 participants, who registered in the first-ever virtual Run for Women, brought to you by the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart™ program. This is an incredible new record.
A special shout out to the 217 Royal inspired team captains who recruited 3,009 teammates. To date, with registration proceeds, Shoppers Drug Mart in-store and community fundraising, $546,597 has been raised for women’s mental health programs at The Royal!
Over the past eight years, over 19,000 people have participated in Ottawa’s Run for Women event; raising over $1.7m to support women in our community living with mental illness.
Not only did all Captains, participants and donors contribute significantly to the event’s fundraising success, but they also helped to build community and inspired people to prioritize their mental health along with their physical health.
