Rexall has a long history of improving the health and wellness of Canadians and our pharmacists and pharmacy staff treat, counsel, and manage the health of thousands of patients every day.

Team VISA

Team Visa is so thrilled to have the chance to participate in the 2016 OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™. Each of us has a unique connection to cancer, as do our sponsors and donors. When one person gets cancer, it impacts everyone around them families, friends and co-workers included. The team at Visa is coming together to support those we love and give back to Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, a world-leader in our own backyard. We believe that in cancer research, one breakthrough is everyone’s breakthrough. One person’s fight is the battle we all take on.

Team RBC 2015
Team GI Joes

I am very proud to be part of Princess Margaret Cancer GI team “the GI Joes” again this year and I ask you to take a stand with my team composed of colleagues, friends, patients and families. When we participated in our walk last year many were struck by the emotion of the day, being connected to a huge community, sharing our lives and working towards this important cause. Only 1 year has passed and yet so much has happened- research progress has occurred and yet we are still losing loved ones too soon to these diseases. Progress comes in small steady steps. I am passionate about making a difference for our patients' treatment options. I am inspired daily by the amazing courage I see in my patients, their families and the dedicated team I work with.

Team Visa
Team McCarthy TÚtrault

It is a privilege to serve as an Honorary Chair of the 2016 OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ and captain of Team McCarthy TÚtrault. Cancer has touched too many of our colleagues, families and friends. A shocking 40 per cent increase in new cancer cases is expected over the next 15 years. There is something we can do about this – we can walk together to help fund research at [The] Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the top–five cancer research centres in the world. Our team is encouraged and inspired by the great progress being made at [The] Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in the discovery and development of new cancer drugs, and stem cell, immunotherapy and cancer genomics research. Thanks to the generous support we have received from McCarthy TÚtrault LLP, our families and friends, Team McCarthy TÚtrault raised $113,375 through the 2015 OneWalk. We hope to continue to increase our contribution in 2016, encouraging more people to donate to the cause and support our team’s efforts in this mission to conquer cancer!

Team CIBC Mellon

At CIBC Mellon, our employees are encouraged to support causes that are most important to them. Our Weekend Walkers team that participates in OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ is consistently one of the largest and most popular fundraising groups each year. While the composition of the team changes each campaign, its passion and the enthusiasm for supporting such an important cause, and the energy it produces throughout the entire company, is truly inspirational. Personally, I choose to participate in OneWalk to Conquer Cancer for many reasons, an important one being that I can surround myself with people who share my values and beliefs when it comes to our fight against cancer. I am very proud to be an honorary chair for this event and I look forward to what we can all collectively accomplish in 2016.

Team Scotiabank Fight Club

OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ raised over $7.5 million for [the] Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in 2015 and as an Honourary Chair and member of Scotiabank Fight Club, I am proud to be part of an amazing team. With 40% of all Canadians expected to develop cancer during their lifetime, and with an expected 40% increase in the number of cases by 2030, fundraising for cancer research is more important than ever. This is why Scotiabank participates in OneWalk to Conquer Cancer and I encourage others to join us in supporting this great cause.

Team Morneau Shepell

It’s incredibly rewarding for our Morneau Shepell OneWalk Team to be recognized in this way by the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. As you can imagine, many of our 4,000 employees are no stranger to this debilitating and often fatal disease and the OneWalk effort gives us an inspiring way to join together and walk to help find a cure.
