For over 100 years, Women's College Hospital has been revolutionizing health care for women. Today, by joining our team, you will become part of the most innovative team in health care today.
At Women's College Hospital we are finding solutions to our health care system's most complex problems and then sharing those solutions with hospitals across the country. We're the hospital that keeps people out of hospital.
We are also a hospital of firsts including being the first hospital in Canada entirely focused on ambulatory care and the only hospital of this kind solely dedicated to women's health. Ambulatory care allows for surgeries, diagnostic procedures and treatments that do not require an overnight stay. That means patients can be released within 18 hours and can recover in the comfort of their own home, communicating with our doctors through home visits and mobile devices.
We wouldn't be able to do any of this without you on our team — Women's College Hospital has launched an historic fundraising campaign to build a new, state-of-the-art facility and invest in women's health research. Every step of the marathon, you'll be making history with us.
The Campaign for Women's College Hospital is our historic $555 million fundraising campaign to support the building of our new state-of-the-art Women's College Hospital. Opening in 2015, a new, modern facility will replace the current hospital integrating patient care, research and education.

The old adage is true – if you don't ask, you don't get. Get into the habit of asking for a donation and you'll be surprised to find how many people are more than willing to give!
Start with the people you know and feel comfortable around — family, friends, neighbours, and co-workers — to guarantee you some early sponsors and boost your confidence. Using the online system you can easily ask for support from friends and family — near and far — via email and online social networks.
You can ask for sponsors in lieu of gifts for birthdays and holidays. Also, try adding your personal page link into your email signature, and let people know why you are fundraising!
It's a great opportunity to share your story. You can update your personal page with your own picture and message to let everyone know you are fundraising. You may also be surprised to find that your friends, neighbours, and co-workers may also have their own stories to share.
Set a clear personal goal and a time frame for achieving your target. Consider the amount of money you want to raise. Can you help raise $100, $200, $500, $1,000 or even more? Try sponsoring yourself to kick-start your campaign, and remember: runners who raise $500 each will have their registration fee refunded!
