On September 30, 2018, more than 82,000 Canadians gathered in 56 different communities to take part in the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure, raising an estimated $16.2 million for the breast cancer cause.
Now in its 27th year, the funds raised from the CIBC Run for the Cure will be invested in the most promising breast cancer research as well as the country’s leading breast cancer information and support programs. Since the 1980s, breast cancer survival rates have increased by nearly 20%.
Running Room is proud to support the cause through event sponsorship and donation of funds from sales of our Pink Ribbon Collection apparel line. Since the program’s inception in 1998, Pink Ribbon apparel donations total $1,520,768.00.
