At The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, our fundraising events are crucial to supporting world-class cancer research and care.
Today, we are as committed as ever to ensuring safe, healthy and inspiring events. Because COVID is not yet behind us, most of our events continue to be virtual. Should we have an opportunity to host any event in the future in any live capacity, we want to reassure you that such event will be planned with an abundance of caution, closely following guidelines from World Health Organization (WHO), Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), Ontario and Toronto health agencies, and of our University Health Network (UHN).
Please continue to check our website, or our event’s websites for details on how each event will unfold for 2021.
One thing that will not change is our commitment to Conquering Cancer in our Lifetime and as always, we thank you for partnering with us in our mission.
Are any of your events cancelled?
Due to the COVID-19 situation, most 2020 events have proceeded in a virtual format, or were cancelled altogether. For 2021, we continue to plan virtual events, and are keeping close tabs on all authorities regarding guidelines around in-person gatherings.
Although our Showhome is closed, you can still support critical cancer research and care by purchasing Spring Lottery tickets here.
Our donor events have moved to virtual. Our team will keep you apprised of updates regarding new online events, and when and if it becomes safe to meet physically again.
Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Events
Our fundraising events, and the support from participants, donors and sponsors, are critical to continuing our groundbreaking cancer research and care so we can fund our fight to Conquer Cancer in our Lifetime.
At this time, our peer-to-peer fundraising events have moved to online or virtual formats. Should any restrictions be amended as the vaccination rolls out and the local situation becomes safe, we will communicate updates via email, social and on our websites.

- Regularly wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds or more & make use of hand sanitizer when available.
