TORONTO – The WOMEN IN MINING (WIM) network in Toronto is working hard to gather the resources of the mining industry, and aim them directly at the fight against breast cancer. A team of eight WIM members is walking in the 60-km, two-day Weekend to End Breast Cancer in Toronto walk on Sept. 7-9, benefiting the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation for breast cancer research, treatment and care.
Aiming to be the largest fund-raiser in the walk, the team has set a goal of $200,000 of donations, and is already over halfway there. It has raised over $86,000 (and is in third place), with another $32,750 in firm commitments. They need your help in an industry-wide, national effort to make it the rest of the way.
Help them show the public that mining people care. In return, the team promises to deliver a very positive message about our industry.
