2024 New Town Toyota Walk for Women's Cancer
Now in our third year, we’re thrilled to be the title sponsor of the New Town Toyota Walk for Women’s Cancer. As a local family-owned business, our partnership of an event dedicated to the women in our lives and the family and friends who love them is a fantastic fit.
The funds raised through the Walk go towards helping discover kinder treatments and better outcomes for women fighting breast and ovarian cancer.
We invite you to join our team and walk in solidarity in the New Town Toyota Walk for Women’s Cancer on Saturday, 27 April, 2024. This inspiring event supports the life-changing medical research undertaken by the incredible researchers at Perkins Institute. But they can’t do it without the crucial support from the community. Yes, we're looking at you!
We hope you’ll support the cause in 2024 by walking with us or giving a kind donation, if you can.
In 2023, the Walk raised an incredible $1.54 million. This year we're aiming even higher! Support the cause and register for the 2024 New Town Toyota Walk for Women's Cancer, and help put a stop to cancer.
