Growing Women's Health

Growing Women's Health - Shoppers Drug Mart

It’s that time of year again, when leaves fall from the trees, kids are back at school and the Growing Women’s Health Campaign at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across the country.

Over the last 11 years, Growing Women’s Health has raised more than $875,000 in support of Women’s initiatives at The Ottawa Hospital including the expansion of our Breast Health Centre.  We are thrilled to be the beneficiary of the local Growing Women’s Health Campaign once again in 2017.

This year, 32 locations will be directing the proceeds to The Ottawa Hospital’s Breast Health Centre.  The Ottawa Hospital Foundation has almost reached its goal of raising $14 million for this expansion project.

When you, your friends or family visit any Shoppers between September 9 and October 10, consider purchasing a leaf ($1), butterfly ($5), apple ($10) or bird ($50) icon and help Shoppers continue to help us provide world-class care to women in our community.
