On October 1st, nearly 85,000 people gathered in 56 communities across Canada to make a promise to change the future of breast cancer at the CIBC Run for the Cure. Although the run is in its 20th year, this was the first year that the event was associated with the Canadian Cancer Society (which merged with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in February 2017).
Running Room is a proud sponsor of this event and supports special teams to strengthen our people and our communities to fight for a common cause. Thanks to all the change makers, the 2017 event raised an estimated $17 million to invest in breast cancer research. Together, 38 Running Room teams across the country raised over $74,840 towards research, bringing our total to $1,057,603 in the last 19 years. In addition, $1,467,211.40 has been raised from Running Room’s exclusive clothing line, the Pink Ribbon Collection. We are grateful to be in this fight together. Join the next CIBC Run for the Cure on Sunday, September 30, 2018. For more information, visit cibcrunforthecure.com.
