CIBC Run for the Cure
The CIBC Run for the Cure is a 5 KM or 1 KM walk or run that supports the breast cancer cause at the Canadian Cancer Society. With close to 60 events across the country, this inspirational fundraiser is the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada.
With 1 in 8 Canadian women affected by breast cancer, it continues to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women. Join the CIBC Run for the Cure on October 6, 2019 and help to change the future of breast cancer for your family, friends and all Canadians. Registration will open in May.
