CIBC Run for the Cure
The CIBC Run for the Cure is a 5k or 1k walk or run that supports the breast cancer cause at the Canadian Cancer Society. With close to 60 events across the country, this inspirational is the largest single-day, volunteer-led event in Canada.
With 1 in 9 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 1, 2017 and help to create a future without breast cancer.
Great progress has been made
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
