Supporting Women’s Health

Shoppers Drug Mart® has been leading the way in its support of women’s health for more than a decade.  And now more than ever is a critical time to show up for women and their health.
 
The Shoppers Foundation for Women’s Health™ is a registered, charitable organization dedicated to fostering health equity for women by increasing access to care and support, improving awareness of women’s unique health needs, and providing support for critical women’s health research.  
 
With the support of Shoppers Drug Mart® stores, Associate-owners, colleagues, vendors and millions of customers, the Foundation envisions a future where care is equitable and accessible so that all women in Canada can lead healthier lives.

Testimonials

Sasha M., Oakville Run for Women Participant

“I dedicated my 10K run/walk to anyone who is or has suffered from mental illness... Let’s start to hold space for our own emotional needs as well as for our family, friends, co-workers and strangers without fear of same or stigma. Everyone deserves to feel as good as they are.”

Kristal L., CEO of Beausejour Family Crisis Resource Centre

“Run for Women Moncton is our only major fundraiser that allows us to keep our doors open and to respond to the increasing demand for domestic violence services. For every $100 donated, two trauma-specialized sessions are provided to women in need. Funding from our Run for Women is another step forward in developing the first trauma-specialized daycare in New Brunswick and the first in Nova Scotia.”
