In memory of Veronica Thompson, a cherished friend and mentor lost to ovarian cancer in 2020, join us for a journey through the heart of Toronto that celebrates her remarkable spirit and legacy.

Veronica was more than just a friend; she was a beacon of honour, strength, truth, and friendship, inspiring those around her to strive for their best selves.

This walk is not just a stroll through the city; it's a powerful opportunity to shine a light on ovarian cancer, a disease often overlooked amidst the focus on other cancer societies.

By honouring Veronica, we aim to raise awareness and support for those battling this silent killer.

Starting at Bellwoods Trinity Park on Queen St. W, we'll gather amidst the tranquil beauty of nature—a fitting tribute to Veronica's love for life's simple pleasures.

As we embark on our journey, we'll weave through the vibrant streets of Toronto, reflecting the diversity and energy that Veronica embraced in her own life.

Our destination: Dundas Square, the beating heart of downtown Toronto.

Here, amidst the hustle and bustle of city life, we'll come together to honour Veronica's memory and amplify the call for ovarian cancer awareness.

Dundas Square is a symbol of unity, a place where communities converge—a perfect setting to unite in gratitude and togetherness.

Veronica's memory lives on in the stories we share along the way, in the laughter and tears exchanged among friends old and new.

Let us walk not only in remembrance but in solidarity, as we strive to make a difference in the fight against ovarian cancer.

Join us on Veronica's Walk, and together, let's paint the city with the colours of honour, strength, truth, and friendship.
