100% of every donation goes directly to the Jewish General Hospital, an international leader in the fight against cancer. From there the Jewish General Hospital invests in their breast cancer research, prevention, and treatment programs and pays for the costs of the event. The hospital is committed to breast cancer research at the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital, moving us a step closer to the end of the disease.
