In 2001, BH girls joined hands and hearts for the inaugural Girls for the Cure, many walking in memory of friends and family, with funds raised directed to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation in support of breast cancer research, treatment, and patient care. Since then, the Balmoral Hall School community has raised more than $410,000 for women's cancer over the course of 18 walks. On October 30, 2018, at the 27th Annual Guardian Angel Benefit for Women's Cancer, Head of School Joanne Kamins accepted the Great-West Life Award of Distinction on behalf of all Girls for the Cure participants.

"Without your participation, generosity, and encouragement over the past 18 years, we would not be receiving this wonderful recognition," she said.

The following statement was included in the gala program:

"CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the Guardian Angels value our long-time relationship with the students and staff at Balmoral Hall School, and we congratulate you on your outstanding achievement."
