Heritage Heroes & Heroines
The Heritage Heroes and Heroines are walking in memory of three very special women from the Heritage community: Ginette Dubois, who was the assistant to the former Director General; Helen Smyth, who was a NewMedia & Publication Design Professor, and Kim Tysick, who was our former Academic Dean. They all lost their battle with ovarian cancer, a disease that is difficult to diagnose until late stages.
In Canada today, there are 17,000 women living with ovarian cancer. Each of these women is central to a family, every one of these women have people who love her. This year, our team is walking for HER.
Every dollar our team raises supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity entirely dedicated to this important cause. Funds will be used to provide support, increase awareness and fund vital research.
Please support our team with your donation. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, please consider joining us. We’d be proud to have you walking as a member of our team.
Together we can make a difference.
