For the first time since I have lived here (and for, perhaps, the first time ever), the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers did not have its annual pink parade through Weston. The walk was this weekend, but it did not grace our community.
The parade was always a wonderful day, with thousands of bright and beautiful women and men raising money by walking through Toronto. The proceeds went for cancer research.
Laurel Hanns, a spokesperson, has this to say about the route change:
I am sorry the route didn’t go through Weston. Due to traffic and city regulations we had to update the route.
