Motherisk News: Shoppers 2010 Tree of Life campaign brings new gift to Motherisk
TORONTO December 2010 - The Motherisk Program at SickKids was once again the grateful recipient of funds raised during the Shoppers Drug Mart Tree of Life campaign. Thanks to the generous support of Shoppers Drug Mart employees and customers, the ninth annual Tree of Life campaign raised over $40,000 for Motherisk. This most recent contribution will support Motherisk research into the risk or safety of exposures during pregnancy and lactation, and help ensure the health and wellbeing of women and children.
During the four week campaign, from September 18th, 2010 to October 15th, 2010, more than 1,180 Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix stores across Canada participated in the 2010 Tree of Life campaign to provide support to 375 Canadian healthcare related charities. National in scope, yet locally based, the Tree of Life campaign sees 100 percent of the proceeds donated to women?s health charities within individual communities, allowing women even greater access to services and information they need to stay healthy in mind, body and spirit.
The Motherisk Team thanks Shoppers Drug Mart for its exceptional support and generosity during the 2010 Tree of Life campaign.
