The Rexall™ OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is coming up soon, and we want to help you Get Walk Ready for it!
That’s why we’ll be sharing some great tips this month to push your fundraising over the finish line or even achieve Ambassador status, plus offering great prizes and flash challenges along the way.
So let’s get started!
Here is your first fundraising tip courtesy of Walker Elske Bosma:
“Having been a part of The Walk since its start, I have been touched by the very real connections that are formed year after year. When I first chose to join the event in 2003, I had just celebrated another birthday alive and having survived cancer I wanted to give back and so here I am today, walking again for the 10th time.
This has become an experience of a lifetime and I could not be more grateful for the supportive and inspiring people I have met over the years. When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2000, it was no stranger a shock to myself and my family. When I signed up in February 2003 this event became a therapeutic way for me to heal from it all. I learned the more good I did, the better I felt, and I strongly believe that when I fundraise year after year.
Doing this for the 10th time requires creativity and I have accepted the challenge gladly by going to work parties, networking events and such to reach more people. I am not one to shy away from asking for money through emails and neither should any of you. We are doing this for a good cause and whoever chooses to donate will also feel good about helping. I have seen and experienced first-hand the incredible work that has been accomplished thanks to all the supporters of the cause and the donations. I believe in the cause and do not plan to stop walking. I will see you all in September for another memorable year!”

With the Rexall™ OneWalk to Conquer Cancer™ only a few months away, CIBC wants to help you kick start your fundraising into overdrive!
Between Monday, June 11, and Canada Day, July 1, CIBC is giving you the chance to win one of 25 individual $200 matching fundraising gifts*! Simply raise $200 or more and you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win a $200 fundraising boost.
As a proud Founding Partner, CIBC is committed to supporting organizations that help patients and their loved ones through the cancer journey. For CIBC team members, giving back is personal, and they continue to support causes they care about like OneWalk by rallying around the common goal of helping people and communities thrive. Now they want to help you to reach your personal fundraising goals.
Use this tip from CIBC employee Charlena Gaulin to help get your fundraising in motion:
“The OneWalk to Conquer Cancer is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. The first step to kicking off your fundraising is to directly reach out to your network through email. Explain why the cause is so important to you. Everyone has their own story and reason and this adds a more personal touch. From there, post on your social media pages, reach out to your clubs, host an event to learn more. You’d be surprised at how many people you can engage.”
Any Walker who raises $200 between now and July 1 will also get a OneWalk Pop Socket for their phone, which will be helpful when taking pictures of those special moments on event.
