We Walk and Run So Others
Can Take the Next Step

The Run for Women, brought to you by the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart program is a 5K Run/Walk, 10K Run and Little Steps 1K taking place in 18 cities across Canada.

Living with mental health challenges is hard but we can come together make a difference. Every dollar raised supports mothers, daughters, and friends through the funding of programs that allow women to take that next step to recovery.

In this website, you can visit your race city page to see how Run for Women funding supports local programs in your community.

We Walk and Run to Change Minds
The Run for Women is a celebration of the healing power of a loving community. We also celebrate the power of loving ourselves. Research shows that running and walking is as effective as taking medication for mild to moderate depression and anxiety. When we come together to walk or run with friends, we experience that exercise can heal the mind and restore the soul.
